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.
Once you check in on public transportation, the GVB P+R ticket is valid for one hour. 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.
