..........the buses do.

Generally the Amsterdam bus system takes you further afield into the suburbs than the tram system and is shared by GVB and Arriva buses, though tickets are valid on both. As with the tram system most routes radiate out from Centraal Station with GVB having the "pole position" as it were and seem to have the most popular routes - it would be interesting to see their relative accounts!!

Ticketing system is exactly the same as the trams - "strippenkaarts" or day passes.
