Transferium met P+R (park an ride)
Amsterdam Arena’s car park offers a P+R arrangement. The metro runs from the Transferium to Amsterdam Central Station. The P+R arrangement only operates on days when there are no events at the Amsterdam Arena.
Coaches can park in the special parking facilities for buses: P2 on Prins Hendrikkade towards Central Station or P6 at the Amsterdam Passenger Terminal. Would you like the coach to drop off your pupils at NEMO first? They can be dropped off at the west quay close to NEMO until 11.00, but not at the regular bus stops or elsewhere along Prins Hendrikkade. After 11.00 we suggest that you use drop-off point H11 by the Maritime Museum. For more information, take a look at the instructions for coaches at www.amsterdam.nl.
