Routes and tickets for Amsterdam's metro


All of Amsterdam’s metro stations are gated by check-in and check-out ports, accessible only with a public transport chip card (OV-Chipkaart) or another valid travel card. If you are not in possession of a personal chip card, you can purchase a one-hour ticket or a rechargeable non-personalised public transport chip card at GVB service desks or vending machines at the station. Please note: the metro stations do not have manned service desks (but there may be an assistant on hand to help at ticket machines).

For your convenience, you can purchase GVB passes valid for 24- to 96 hours at the reception.
