New policy for coaches

Bus station Amsterdam Centraal

From 1 January 2024, coaches weighing more than 7.5 tonnes will only be permitted to enter the city centre if the drivers are in possession of an exemption. There are stops for passengers where no exemption is required to board and disembark at the edge of the city centre and on De Ruijterkade Oost. There will also be stops for coaches at public transport stations from early 2024. This will make it easier for passengers to change to public transport to continue their journey into the city centre.
