Park & Ride
Outside the centre of Amsterdam there are a number of Park & Ride facilities. Those wanting to get into the city can park their car at a 'P+R' site on the outskirts of the city and travel onwards using public transport. After all, P+R gets you into the centre conveniently, cheaply and securely. Conveniently, because from each P+R site you can climb on board of a bus, tram, metro or train that will take you into the city. Cheaply, because you can yor car for only � 5,50 per 24 hours. And securely, because the P+R car parkings are secured so your car is kept under surveillance. So whether you are going into the centre to shop, go out or visit friends or family, choose the convenience, advantage and security of a P+R site.
Please note: Do NOT use your credit card when entering the P&R garage. Only on presentation of the parking ticket issued at the P&R will you receive the P&R discounts (� 5.50 for 24 hours parking and two free public transport tickets).
The P+R rules:
1.You take a parking ticket from the barrier at the entrance point.
2.Once you have parked your car, take your parking ticket to the P+R kiosk.
3.There, you and your travelling companion will get a NS return ticket for the train or a GVB return ticket for bus, tram or metro into Amsterdam.
4.Important! Make sure to get your return ticket stamped on both the inward and outward public transport trips.
5.When you get back, show your stamped GVB tickets or usedup NS tickets along with your P+R ticket at the P+R kiosk.
6.Then you only have to pay � 5.50 at the payment machine (credit card payments possible).
P+R tickets for more than one day (MP+R ticket):
Are you going into the city for longer than 24 hours? Then ask at the P+R kiosk for a multipleday P+R ticket. This lasts for up to 96 hours. It still costs only � 5.50 per 24 hours.
This MP+R ticket entitles you moreover to two public transport tickets for the journey out by tram, bus, metro or train to Amsterdam. The costs of the return trip (after 24 hours) to the P+R location are not included. Take care! After 96 hours the right to use the multiple-day P+R ticket lapses and the normal hourly or daily rates will apply.
Take advantage of this preferential P+R scheme and stick to the P+R rules mentioned. If you don�t use the public transport return tickets, or don�t stamp them, then you�ll pay the normal parking tariff (� 10,00).
So avoid disappointment and make sure that you hand in again your stamped GVB tickets or your used-up NS tickets!
