Train service to Amsterdam Schiphol airport still affected

The train accident near Amsterdam Central Station, that happened yesterday, still affects train connections to Schiphol and other destinations.

The accident took place just west of the Central Station, so train services to destinations such as Schiphol airport, Haarlem, Zaandam and Alkmaar are affected.

There is limited train service, and you should expect delays of up to an hour.

Delays are expected to last until at least Thursday, June 9.

See also the railway website (click on 'Storingen' or 'Beperkt treinverkeer Amsterdam', Dutch language only).

Especially if you travel on June 9 you may experience delays. On that day there is a public transport strike by municipal civil servants.
