Again, depending on where you're coming from, you can reach Breda by car using the A16 or A27 motorway.
In the city centre you can easily get around by foot.
There is plenty of parking space to park your car, but it'll cost you about 3 guilders per hour (except for the weekends and on weekdays after 18.00 uur). If you look for a parking place a bit further from the centre you'll pay less...

Breda is located at the cross roads of two main rail lines: the east-west link between Vlissingen, on the North Sea coast, and Nijmegen and about midway between Rotterdam and Antwerp on the north-south axis. As a result there are regular train services allowing easy access to the rest of the Netherlands as well as services into Belgium.
The station itself is located about 10 minutes walk from the city centre and despite being a relatively small, and scruffy, building has all the basics expected from a Dutch station including convenience shops, snack stalls and left-luggage.
The only pain-in-the-neck I found with it is that the ticket machines only take either Dutch debit/travel cards or euro change (not notes) and when I went to buy a ticket from the office I was advised to use the machine. When I pointed out that I had insufficient change and asked the woman behind the counter if she could change a 20 euro note she simply shrugged and explained she wasn't allowed to. Very Dutch!
The main Breda bus station is next door to the railway station from which you an get local buses and those for further afield and there's also a bicycle hire shop on the station forecourt, as well as plenty of bike parking.

Breda is a very compact city with its centre still pretty much laid-out as it was in Medieval times. Almost everything of note is contained within the encircling canal belt and is very walkable. The streets can be a bit confusing though as they wind and twist for whatever reason that they were initially designed. Fortunately there are plenty of helpful signposts and maps at strategic locations and so it's almost impossible to get lost.
Especially useful is the map immediately outside the railway station which makes everything easily findable if you've just arrived for the first time.
Though as a suggestion to the local tourist office - mightn't it be an idea to mark the best pubs on it too??

You can easily get there by train from Amsterdam or antoher place in Holland. From Breda central station you can take a bus that goes directly to the center of the city. Therefor you can purchase a ticket in the bus at the busdriver or at the ticketoffice at the trainstation.
You can get around by a bus. However, if the weather is ok, you can hire a typically dutch byecicle to see the city. There is also a beautiful park where you can skate and walk around.

The centre of Breda is quite compact, but so many places of interest are in such small area that you definately have to go around on foot to see everything properly.
