Price of Tram tickets

Price of the Tram in Amsterdam

The tram is a great way to move from A to B in Amsterdam.  They run regularly until 00.15.  If you would like to know where the tram can take you please take a look at the Tram map of Amsterdam.

The payment system is like the Oyster Card in London and is named an OV-chipcard.  These cards allow unlimited travel on all trams, buses, metros and night buses. The card can be bought for different durations. There are 24-, 48-, 72-, 96-, 120-, 144- and 168- hour OV-chipcards

Where to buy the ticket?

These cards can be purchased at various places in Amsterdam and also on the Tram itself. We would not recommend this since they charge a premium price when the ticket is bought on the tram itself.

We would recommend buying these online at GVB. There are various places where you can also top up a card if you have already bought a card.
