Rotterdam Transportation

We are six of us and will be in rottedam this weekend. We will be visiting Kubuswonungen area and from there we will go to the harbour for the Erasmus bridge visit and boattrip to kinderdijk.

1) Are the "strippenkarte" still available? or only chip cards?

2) which tram/metro we should take for kubuswonungen and from there to harbour?

3) Is the harbour at walkable distance from Kubuswonungen ?

Every year they have a new strippenkaart in the Netherlands. So if you bought your strippenkaart in 2007, it is not valid anymore.

To take a public transport, you will need a strippenkaart.

I'd say the Erasmus bridge is walkable from the Kubuswoningen. Probably about 20-30 minutes.

Small corrections:

* 2007 strippencards are valid until the 2nd tariff raise, so until 1-1-2009!

* The question here was not so much about old cards but about the Rotterdam changeover to OV Chip Card. As far as I know this is not complete yet and at least in all trams in Rotterdam both strippen and ChipCard are allowed, don't know for sure about metro.

* Kubus houses themselves are near the Maas river (and best visited from Blaak train station which also has a metro station). From there to Erasmus Bridge, another harbour highlight (and the starting point for Spido harbour cruises), is indeed 20-30 mins walk.

All the best,
