For municipal and regional public transport in Amsterdam (regular service bus, train and tram), we advise you to buy a 1-hour card (inside the bus or at a vending machine). This costs € 3 per person. The card is valid for 1 hour uninterrupted and you can use it for all public transport within Amsterdam. You can’t use these cards in the subway(metro). For tourists this card is the cheapest way to travel.

At the GVB-service machines and at the Tickets & Info-office across the main entry of Amsterdam Central Station you are still able to pay in cash.
