Amsterdam-Noord can be reached by car via the A10 ring road. From the centre of Amsterdam, you can reach Noord via the IJtunnel. The permitted maximum of 70 kilometres per hour applies in the IJtunnel towards Amsterdam-Noord. From Noord to the centre this is 50 kilometres per hour.
Every year 14.5 million people travel by the GVB ferry or bus to Amsterdam-Noord. This number will increase with the arrival of the North/South line. We are still waiting for a while. If you come by train you can get off at Amsterdam Central Station and take the ferry or the Noord/Zuidlijn from De Ruijterkade. As a pedestrian or cyclist, you can also use the ferry. There are various ferry connections to Amsterdam-Noord. A number of the ferry connections depart from De Ruyterkade, directly behind Central Station. Since the opening of the Noord/Zuidlijn you can no longer use the bus lines from Central Station to Noord. So you will have to take the metro.
Amsterdam-Noord is the only part of Amsterdam where you still have places where you can park for free. Paid parking has only been introduced in part. The parking policy in the Amsterdam-Noord district was that parking would remain free, with the exception of Shopping Center Boven ‘t Y and the NDSM area, which is clearly no longer the case.
From July 1, 2018, a lot has changed in terms of parking in Amsterdam-Noord and April 14, 2019, the price has also been increased again. April 14, 2019, parking fees have been increased. From € 1.30 to € 1.40. From € 3.00 to € 3.50.
Paid parking expansion
Partial introduction of paid parking in a number of neighbourhoods in Amsterdam-Noord created additional parking pressure in a number of surrounding neighbourhoods.
