When you see a cross where you want to park dont park your car here.
It can be that it is sharing a car place like for car2go, connectcars.
It can be only for police
It can be a special Handicap parking mostly you will see a licenseplate sign.
Your car will be tow away
for cheaper parking look on the map web link
I dont think there is any free parking in Amsterdam no more
You cant buy public transport tickets on the street.
You can only buy them at the public transport itself or some offices like at Tickets and Info at Central station, Station Zuid (South) Also possible to buy more day tickets here.
Holland pass you need to give the coupon for public transport at the office you buy this pass.
The scam works like this i have seen 1 person doing it.
He asks tickets from people leaving the tram or picks tickets up from the street.
He sells them to you or go with you and asks a bigger price often then they costs for the service he gave. The person i know he scams is tall is white and has sometimes a coat with nr 88 on the back.
a ticket works when you check in and get a green light and 1 beep. you read a date or goede ries or overstap check out always you read tot ziens
not working red light 2 beeps.
If you dont have a valid ticket it can cost you 37.70 euro
To reconize a Taxi
Taxi on top of the car
Blue license plate Yellow dont use it ( it is possible but just dont use it as it is someone who
waits for new license plate so the change is almost 0%)
a meter were you can see the price visible and near that a pass with ID of the taxi driver.
Think a taxi will be around 40 euro's from Schiphol to Amsterdam
Know taxi company TCA , Meerlanden, schipholtaxi

use the Calculate price & Book online link
Do you have a complain about a taxi
people who say they are from the police
