Starting today, public transportation cards from TripKey are available for purchase at the Amsterdam Circle Line ticket office, located on the central Kerkstraat 155a. Amsterdam Circle Line's network of sightseeing and transit boats will also be incorporated into TripKey's public transit accommodation system. This partnership aims to make the world-renowned public transit system of The Netherlands more accessible and streamlined for both tourists and locals alike.
TripKey cards are conveniently linked to a credit card and function on a pay-as-you-go system, with nationwide coverage. The cards will provide access to train, metro, bus, tram, the OV-Fiets (public transport bikes) and even Amsterdam Circle Line’s public boats. TripKey cards can be reserved online for a one-time registration fee of €3,50 and can then be acquired at a number of pick-up locations not just in Amsterdam, but throughout The Netherlands.
Using TripKey, a local Amsterdamer or a tourist can ride a tram to an Amsterdam Circle Line boat, ride the boat and be picked up by a bus afterwards to be taken to their hotel.
Amsterdam Circle Line was started just this past May. The service provides two options for exploring and experiencing Amsterdam from the canals: a 90 minute sightseeing cruise along Amsterdam’s historic locations, and a 24-hour hop-on-hop-off ticket where guests can board and disembark at any location all day long. The boats are half-open, electrically powered with heated seats and are operated by tour guides and trained skippers. Boarding locations include famous landmarks such as the Anne Frank house, the flower market, City Hall, the Stopera, Central Station East, the Red-light District and the Museum District.
