Amsterdammers love their trams and you should, too! They provide the best way of getting around the city and run from 06:00 - 00:30. You shouldn't have to wait longer than 10 minutes at any tram stop. One-hour tickets for journeys across the city can be bought from newsagents or tram drivers. They cost €2.80, but if you plan on travelling a lot you're better off purchasing a 24-hour ticket for €7.50. You have to touch the scanner near the doors of the tram when entering and exiting the vehicle.
