How to get around in Amsterdam?

One of the most exciting ways to explore Amsterdam is by hiring a bike and cycling around the neighborhoods. Bike rentals start at approximately €15.00 EUR per day. If possible, avoid driving within the city. Parking is scarce and there are several one-way and narrow streets that are tedious to navigate. If you don’t wish to cycle or walk, it’s better to rely on Amsterdam’s vast public transport network. GVB operates the city’s public buses, trams and ferries on a time-based ticketing system. While a GVB 1-hour day ticket costs €2.90 EUR, a GVB day ticket costs €7.50 EUR. These tickets allow unlimited day and night travel across all GVB routes, regardless of transfers and distance covered. For a scenic way to explore the city, try the water taxis. GVB ferries provide a free connection to pedestrians, cyclists, and mopeds wanting to go across River IJ. All the other ferry routes are priced according to the GVB time-based ticketing system.
