Den offentlige trafik fungerer for så vidt udmærket, men det er misvisende med buslinie 397 fra Schiphol lufthavn, vi fik dog lov at køre ind til centrum, hvor vi blev sat af ved endestationen, og der havde vi så 2 km på gåben til Central Station, hvor vi kunne få ombyttet voucher til chipcard. Vi boede lidt i yderkanten af byen og ud mod lufthavnen hvor netop rute 397 kører, så da vi skulle med ind til byen ude fra hotellet, gælder chipcard ikke til den bus!!! Da vi fandt vores egen at komme til byen fungerede det og vi kunne køre med Linie 369 til lufthavnen.

The 6-day pass is very useful. Transportation works great, very frequently. But the shuttle to the airport a bit wrong. According to the indications, you can validate the voucher purchased at the airport itself, but there they told me that it has to be at the central station. And the 397 bus doesn't stop there, so having already paid the season ticket, you have to walk 30 minutes or pay a ticket of 3.20 to get there. And in the case of bus 397 there is no ticket as such, it is assumed that showing the reservation on the mobile is enough. The drivers both on the way out and on the way back looked at me strangely but they were nice and let me pass without causing a problem. But it was clear that they did not know anything about that system (which is understandable when the reservation comes in Spanish instead of English or Dutch, so they do not understand what it says).

Was good to have tickets already sorted but had to get to central station to exchange tram tickets which was a little difficult as we didn’t know the city very well and the 397 doesn’t go to central (it does stop near by but we didn’t realise this as we’d never been to Amsterdam so we didn’t know place names etc).
