Getting here by car

P+R (Park & Ride) is the smartest way for visitors to Amsterdam to park. These car parks are located on the outskirts of the city and have an excellent public transport connection. Public transport brings you right into the centre of Amsterdam in no time.

Easy & affordable pa rking with Park & Ride

Parking in a P+R car park costs only 8.00 euros per 24 hours - with a maximum parking time of 96 hours. This fee includes FREE public transport to the centre of Amsterdam for a maximum of five people. Be sure to read all the instructions below before parking at a P+R location. In addition, we strongly advise you enter and exit the P+R locations during regular opening hours to ensure that you get the P+R discount rate.

Rules for using P+R

Upon arrival
1 Collect a car park ticket as you go in. Please don’t use your credit card at the entrance, it does not provide the P+R discount.
2 Hand over your parking ticket to the P+R car park attendant and ask for a P+R chip card(s). The car park attendant will code your parking ticket and give you a free P+R chip card to use on public transport.
3 Proceed to the public transport hall and check in with your card by holding next to the electronic card reader.
4 Don’t forget to check out when exiting the vehicle. When visiting the city, be sure not to lose your P+R chip card. If you do not use your chip card, or use it incorrectly, you will no longer be entitled to a discount and will have to pay the normal parking fee. Please note: The P+R chip card is only valid for travelling to and from the P+R location and not for general use in the city centre. In addition, P+R chip cards are not valid on special night busses.

Upon departure
1 Use your P+R chip card for the return journey. Hold your P+R chip card in front of the card reader when entering and exiting the vehicle.
2 Return your parking ticket and the used P+R chip cards to the P+R desk. The attendant will mark your car park ticket for the P+R rate. You can only pay the attendant with a pin or credit card. Cash payments can be made in a point-of-payment terminal.
3 Use the car park ticket when you drive out. The special P+R rate is good for a maximum of four consecutive days (96 hours). After 96 hours you will have to pay the normal parking rate.
