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.
