P+R Return trip

Park your car on the outskirts of the city and take public transportation to the city! You can do this using the P+R operated by the municipality of Amsterdam.

How does P+R return work?

The GVB P+R ticket from the P+R ticket vending machine gives you the right to two trips (there and back, a maximum of 1 hour per trip) using GVB trams, buses or metro, starting out from the official Amsterdam P&R sites listed below.  After checking in at the bus, tram or metro, the GVB P+R card is valid for one hour. Within this hour you can transfer unlimited between the different vehicles and lines. The second hour starts after the first hour has passed by and you check in again.
Note: The tickets are only valid on GVB's daytime lines, and NOT on Connexxion or other transport companies and NOT on the GVB night buses! 

At P+R Noord (next to Station Noord), Boven 't Y, VUmc and Zeeburg III, there are no GVB P+R tickets available in the vending machine. You must use your OV-chipkaart or purchase a chipkaart on the tram or bus, or at the metro station. 

Note: Barcode tickets via the GVB app or other apps cannot be used to obtain a discount on the parking rate from a P+R vending machine. It is also not yet possible to get a discount at a P+R machine if you have travelled with a bank card or credit card.
So travel with an OV-chip card, GVB P+R card or chip card purchased on the bus, tram or at a metro station to benefit from a discount for parking at P+R.
