Amsterdam Public Transport

Amsterdam Public Transport

The Netherlands is home to one of the most densely concentrated road networks in Europe. As a distribution centre, the Netherlands also benefits greatly from smooth traffic flows, a high degree of safety and minimal environmental pollution. For this reason, the Netherlands took initial steps as early as the beginning of the 1980s to develop a sophisticated traffic signaling system, which is also known as a motor traffic management (MTM) system. Mobility is a key issue in the Netherlands. Recent improvements in the flow of traffic and road safety can partly be attributed to the traffic management system. Sweden has also implemented the Dutch traffic signalling system MTM on the Stockholm orbital, part of which runs through a tunnel. Frans de Haes, who at the time worked for the Directorate- General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) was involved. “The system was far ahead of its time,” says De Haes, who is currently the head of Grontmij’s Mobility Department. “Sensors incorporated into the road at 400- to 500-metre intervals determine the amount of traffic on the road and vehicle speed. If speeds fall below 35 kph, the traffic jam prevention system is activated within 10 seconds.”

Season ticket

A season ticket is valid for a particular set of travel zones and for a given period - one week, one month or one year. The area it covers is based upon a selected zone plus a "star value". That indicates how many additional zones in each direction from the nominated zone the ticket is valid in. The number of the selected zone and the star value are printed on the ticket. When deciding the star value of your season ticket, consider the route you wish to take. This must be entirely within the area covered by your season ticket. The zones in which you can travel are counted outwards in every direction from the selected zone, the number depending upon the ticket's star value.
