Park and Ride (P+R) in Amsterdam
The Park and Ride (P+R) parking facilities are on the outskirts of Amsterdam near the ring A-10. The idea is that you park your car, van or coach in Amsterdam for a low fee only €1 or €8 per 24 hours(as from February 2014). You then continue your jorney using a public transportation chipcard – so called OV card (OV-chipkaart), or discounted P+R GVB cards (for travel on GVB bus, trams or metro).
If you want to park your car in the city center, we recommend making an
Amsterdam parking space reservation online.
