Route description Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol) – Amsterdam city centre
From Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol) trains leave every 10-15 minutes for Amsterdam Central Station.
The average journey time from the Airport to Amsterdam or vice versa is about 20 minutes. The fastest intercity connection takes 13 minutes.
Amsterdam Public Transport System
Although the city centre’s compact size means that most areas and sights are within walking distance of each other, Amsterdam’s public transport network (called 'GVB') is efficient, reliable, inexpensive and widely used. One million passengers travel the city by tram, bus, underground metro line and ferry every day.
The GVB day or multi-day ticket provides you with unlimited travel throughout Amsterdam, both day and night, on the bus, tram, and metro, for the number of days that best fits your plans.
Train tickets can be purchased from the NS train tickets machines at train station (main hall airport), (with coins or ATM/Credit cards). It is possible to buy travel passes for unlimited travel with trains, buses, trams and metros over a certain period.
Note that the difference between first and second class travel in trains is negligible, although first class could be more comfortable during rush hour, when trains tend to be overcrowded.
There is a high penalty for travelling on the train without a valid ticket. Travelling by train within the Netherlands: www.ns.nl
Taxis are waiting outside the arrival hall and will bring you to Amsterdam in less than 25 minutes for about € 50,- one way.
