    Amsterdam has a number of Park & Ride (P&R)-locations.

    SInce February 12, 2014 there are new rules and tariffs:
    -Arriving before 10AM on weekdays: € 8 for the first 24 hours of parking; thereafter € 1 per 24 hours.
    -Arriving after 10AM: € 1 per 24 hours.
    -Arriving in the weekend: € 1 per 24 hours.

    Free public transportation tickets are no longer available.
    Instead use your own "OV-chipkaart" or buy tickets with discount at arrival at the ticket machine.
    Be aware that your last ride must be from the Amsterdam center to the P&R-location. The parking ticket machine will check this, before charging the above mentioned parking tariffs.

    The parking garage in the basement of the Olympic stadion is a little unknown, but might be the best around. This garage is very well lit and woman friendly. Toilets are free at the booth.

    With tram 16 or 24 it's just a 15 minute ride to center city.

    The parking has been privatised in 2010 and the number of P&R parking spot is limited and only available if you take the most right entrance lane to the garage.

    To reach this garage take the exit S108 from the A10 ring South side; follow the P&R signs.
    Availability can be a problem in the weekends.

    Other P&R garages are:
    Zeeburg-1 and Zeeburg-2
    Arena
    Sloterdijk

    Newer P&R locations are:
    Bos en Lommer
    World Fashion Center
    Gaasperplas
    VUmc

    Parking in Amsterdam

    by ATLC Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Parking is horrendous in the city. The rate is € 3 per hour in the inner city and € 1,80 per hour outside the canal belt.
    Car parks will be around € 2,50 per hour.
    There are P+R parks at the edge of the city.

    Do consult the website mentioned below (English). A very clear and easy to use website for all your parking questions.

    It's almost impossible to park your car in the Amsterdam center streets. If you are lucky to find a spot, you discover the price is high and you need a lot of Euro coins (or Chipknip, if you have one available with enough electronic money on it).

    Amsterdam has a number of Park & Ride (P&R)-locations, like the ARENA PARK and RIDE.

    SInce February 12, 2014 there are new rules and tariffs:
    -Arriving before 10AM on weekdays: € 8 for the first 24 hours of parking; thereafter € 1 per 24 hours.
    -Arriving after 10AM: € 1 per 24 hours.
    -Arriving in the weekend: € 1 per 24 hours.

    Free public transportation tickets are no longer available.
    Instead use your own "OV-chipkaart" or buy tickets with discount at arrival at the ticket machine.
    Be aware that your last ride must be from the Amsterdam center to the P&R-location. The parking ticket machine will check this, before charging the above mentioned parking tariffs.

    The Arena P&R is not available during an ARENA event like a soccer match or concert.

    Other P&R garages are:
    Zeeburg-1 and Zeeburg-2
    Arena
    Sloterdijk

    Newer P&R locations are:
    Bos en Lommer
    World Fashion Center

    Going by car - the easy way

    Amsterdam Arena Transferium, the way to Park&Ride

    Going by car into the centre of Amsterdam and try to find a parkingspot is the idea of a lunatic. If your not knowing about some secret spot, don;t even bother. The transferium is in this case a lot more easy and also cheaper (unless you want to keep on running to the car refilling the parkingmeter). The transferium is situated in the Arena (the Ajax football stadium). So check out if there are any games at the moment of arrival. If not then follow the P+R-signs that say "Transferium" and from here a minibus will bring you to the nearest metro-station. Tickets for public transport are all included in the parkingfee and you can park as long as you want.

    Dont park your car here

    by dila Written Jan 22, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    -Parking places with a cross on the ground. (mostly this is for handicaps)
    -near a police station mostly the places are for the police cars.
    -signs like autodate (this if for Amsterdam people who dont have a car but share a car in the area)
    Handicap parkings with a license plate number only aloud to park for people with this number.

    Parking cost a lot and i dont think it is free anywhere in the centre.

  • Transferium Arena parking garage

    by eagereagle Written Sep 5, 2011

    There is a beautiful review on the advantages of parking your car out of Amsterdam The review is dated April 2011 but since inflation is caused first by governments and other administrations, the tariffs mentioned have gone up. A day parking is €8 instead of €5, the hour rate is 2.2 instead of 1.9 etc. still payable in comparison to street parking in the city where the tariff has gone up to €5/hr/24h/7days ! There you go, want to spent some money in the city and they literally suck it out of your wallet at arrival. So beware and park in the Transferium Arena Garage and get also 2 free metro or other public transport tickets to the city. John.

  • P+R Bos en Lommer

    by StefaanV Written Jun 29, 2012

    Avoid P&R Bos and Lommer at all costs!

    Our car was broken into at this parking lot, despite no valuables being visible in the car (the only valuable, a GPS in the glove compartiment, was stolen). On the same night more than 5 other cars were broken into; the floor was covered in broken glass.

    They actually have an industrial vacuum cleaner to suck up the broken car glass because it happens so often there. The police office nearby confirmed that they have multiple break in reports daily from this parking lot. Do note that despite the tv-screens and security cameras which may lead you to believe the parking is (partially) guarded, it is not at all guarded. Also, there are multiple cameras on the top level, but not a single one on the bottom level; your car is almost guaranteed to be burgled if it is on the bottom level overnight.

    Do not use this parking lot!

    Unsafe

    by bram74 Written May 21, 2014

    Hello everyone,

    I parked at P+R and someone broke into my car. They broke a window and they took a small suitcase (with clothes!) that I had under the seat. I had difficulty to find a place to change the window and my departure was delayed because of it. You can find better parking here: http://bit.ly/1qUhNZw

    There is secure parking from Hotels and companies. Its also cheaper than public garages.

    I hope this helps
