Starting March 16, there is a new ferry connection over the river IJ, which connects Java island / KNSM island with Amsterdam North.
The ferry, called 'Oostveer' is an experiment of 1 year, to see if it is successful.
The ferry is operated by the GVB, is accessible for pedestrians, cyclists and mopeds, and is free.
The ferry goes between 6.30am and 10.30pm, 7 days a week.
The boat shuttles between Azartplein on KNSM-island and Zamenhofstraat in Amsterdam North.
