Travel from Europort to Rotterdam?

Hi,

Myself and my girlfriend are relocating to Rotterdam on the P&O Ferry. We are arriving at the Europort on the 30th of July and will have 2 large suitcases and 2 bicycles. The P&O Shuttle bus can't accommodate the bikes so we are looking for an alternative way to get into central Rotterdam. From what I can see there is not much of a public transport system out there (apart from the P&O bus) and I have been quoted 100 euros for a taxi (which seems expensive for the distance).

I wanted to ask if anyone has any suggestion of how to get to Rotterdam or any recommended taxi companies and if 100 euro's about about right for the journey.

Thank you for your assistance.

Regards

Hi Alex,

It's middle of nowhere yes. Only way to lower the cost is asking cost for the taxi not to Rotterdam town but to either Spijkenisse or Rozenburg. From Spijkenisse you can take metro into city centre (bikes allowed with a small surcharge) and from Rozenburg first the ferry (cheap, a few euros only including the bikes) and then train into Rotterdam; train however asks 6 euro surcharge per bike hence maybe not worth the cost.

All the best,
