To travel between the airport and the city centre:
* '''[http://www.ns.nl/en/travellers/home NS Dutch Railways]''' operates trains to/from the lower level of the airport. Trains run approximately every 10 minutes between 5:00AM and 1:00AM and hourly during other hours. There are several train stations in Amsterdam and not every train stops at every station; note which station is closest to your accommodation. Also note that trains departures at Schiphol often display 2 platforms (for example: platform 1-2, 3-4 or 5-6), as the exact platform a train departs from is selected only a few minutes before departure (this way, more trains can arrive and depart from the limited amount of tracks underneath Schiphol). During rush hours tourists have been known to cause train delays in the past. To prevent such delays, the Dutch Railways have started to employ crowd controllers at Schiphol during rush hours to navigate tourists and other travellers into the trains on time. The journey to Amsterdam takes 20 minutes and costs €4.50. Tickets can be bought from yellow ticket machines or from the ticket counter, although purchases from the ticket counter incur a €1.00 surcharge. Any purchase paid with Visa or Mastercard will be charged with €0.50 extra (unlike payments with Maestro cards or cash). An [https://www.ns.nl/producten/en/uitleg-overige-producten/p/amsterdam-travel-ticket Amsterdam Travel Ticket] includes a 2nd class return ticket from the airport valid on all trains except Thalys as well as unlimited loal transport in Amsterdam The card costs €17 for 1 day, €22.50 for 2 days, and €28 for 3 days and is a good deal if you plan on riding the trams often in Amsterdam.
* '''[http://www.bus397.nl/ Bus #397 / Amsterdam Airport Express]''' operates service between the airport and Museumplein, Rijksmuseum, and Leidseplein. The bus is only worth taking if these stops are closer to your accommodation. The bus costs €4.75/single €9/return if purchased online or €5/single if purchased from the driver. The bus departs from platform B9 every 15 minutes during the day and hourly at night and the journey takes approximately 40 minutes.
