Transport from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) to the RIPE 77 meeting venue:
Total journey time: 20 minutes
Estimated taxi fare: €35 – 40
Directions: Follow the signs above and on the floor towards the terminal to reach the official taxi stands in front of Schiphol Plaza. From there, you can catch a metered taxi, so you’ll never pay more than you have to. The drivers accept credit cards, cannot refuse carriage, and will issue a printed receipt.
Please avoid all unsolicited rides from taxi touts.
Total journey time: 30 – 45 minutes
Ticket fare: €4
Directions: There are frequent trains (about once every 10-15 minutes) from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam Zuid train station. From Amsterdam Zuid, take bus 65 towards KNSM Eiland and get off at Scheldestraat. The Okura Hotel is a 3-minute walk from there.
You can purchase train tickets from the desks or the terminals at the airport. The bus driver can sell you a one-way ticket fare. It’s cheaper to travel using an “OV-chipkaart” (public transportation card). An OV-chipkaart can be bought from the GVB Tickets & Info office or GVB Ticket Vending Machines.
