Amsterdam is changing and being renovated where necessary. Many major maintenance works are planned for 2022, which means that public transport must deviate from the normal routes. And — with a bit of luck — large events such as King's Day and the Dam to Dam Weekend also can be held as planned. In addition, new systems and new vehicles sometimes produce unplanned disruptions in our service. Except because of the fun events, the diversions and disruptions are very annoying. We are doing everything we can to inform you as thoroughly and as timely as possible. Below is a list of the major planned maintenance works and events per month. Schedules can change, so keep an eye on our site and the GVB app for the details of the current diversions.
