Tickets Concertgebouw and Stadsschouwburg valid on Amsterdam public transport

Starting September 1 2005, tickets for the theatres Concertgebouw and the Stadsschouwburg are valid as transport tickets on Amsterdam buses, trams and metros.

The 2 theatres have agreed this with the GVB, the municipal public transport company.

The reason for the agreement is the parking problems caused by the many bicycles and cars around the theatres, that are 2 of the big theatres in Amsterdam.

The tickets will work 3 hours before and 4 hours after the performance.
