Amsterdam Tram Routes Information

Trams are ideal for short journeys around the city center, as well as for travelling to other districts. Only one-hour disposable tickets can be purchased from the conductor. Other types of tickets can be purchased at GVB Tickets & Info offices or GVB ticket vending machines. Trams provide the best way to get around Amsterdam (map) and run regularly until 12:15am.

Trams run on the network on standard gauge track. Since 1900, they have been powered by electricity, at 600 V DC. At the termini of almost every tram line there is a suitable turning loop, so that the line can be operated by unidirectional trams. The only exception is Amstelveen Binnenhof, one of the termini of line 5, which must therefore be served by bidirectional vehicles. There are 15 lines as of 2013. In 2007, the network comprised a total of 80.5 km (50.0 mi) of track, with some sections used only for vehicles not in service. The fleet is made up of 216 trams, of which 24 are bidirectional and thus suitable for operations on loop-less line 5.

You can use both I amsterdam and OV – Chipcard to the Amsterdam tram network.
