Public Transport on New Years Day?

Am staying over in the 'Dam for New Year and wondered what the Public Transport is like on New Years Day afternoon? Does it just STOP like in the UK or will I get back to Schipol OK for my flight home?

Hi there,

No problem. It will run as a standard Sunday schedule.

The only full stop period is at New Year's Eve after 8 PM, logical so that the transport staff can also celebrate. But Amsterdam night buses do work most of the night afterwards!

I wonder if the after 8PM lessening of transport is because of the general mayhem on the streets- for safety. I think it's similiar on Queen's Day when the trams only go as far as the Canal Ring before turning back. There's just too many people on the streets for mechanical vehicles to coexist safely.

Hi Larry,

No it isn't. That stop after 8 PM is nationwide, even in the smallest villages where there is hardly any risk of human-bus collisions around midnight New Year.
