Public transportation in Amsterdam consists of bus and tram lines. The operating bodies are Gemeentelijk Vervoerbedrijf, Connexxion and Arriva. Four metro lines are also serving the city. There are two free ferries which carry pedestrians and cyclists across the IJ to Amsterdam Noord.

Eight railway stations are also significantly contributing the Amsterdam transport. Amsterdam Centraal is an international train station which connects the destinations like Belgium, France, Germany and Switzerland. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is also just 20 minutes far from Amsterdam Central Station. It is the fourth largest airport in Europe and tenth largest in the world. It is also measured as the third busiest airport in the world.

Amsterdam is bicycle friendly city and car driving is discouraged in the city through steep parking fees and closing the streets or making it one way for the cars. However, A10 Ringroad has surrounded the city with the Dutch national network of freeways. Water taxies and water buses are the most pleasing part of Amsterdam public transport which is major tourist attraction in addition to the canal cruises.
