Public transport tickets

In Amsterdam and throughout the Netherlands, residents use the National public transport chip card (named: OV-chipkaart) for traveling on trams, buses, metros and trains. It is also possible for visitors to purchase an OV-chipkaart, but we advise not to do that. We recommend tourists to use one of the above mentioned cards.
