Some of the main coach operators providing journeys to and from Amsterdam are Eurolines, Flixbus, iDBUS and Megabus.
Eurolines is based at station Duivendrecht (Stationsplein 3). This is a major transport hub in the southeast of the city, with direct onward connections by train, metro, tram and bus. The Eurolines ticket office is open daily at this address from 07:00 to 23:00. There is also a booking centre at Rokin 38A (open Mon-Sat, 09:00-17:00).
Flixbus operates frequent services between Amsterdam and a variety of German towns and cities. These services terminate at Amsterdam Sloterdijk. This transport hub is in the west of the city (only 5 minutes from Amsterdam Central Station by train). From Sloterdijk, there are direct onward connections by train, metro, tram and bus. There are also many hotels in the vicinity.
iDBUS is a French operator that runs international services to and from Amsterdam, terminating at Amsterdam Sloterdijk. See above for onward travel tips.
Megabus is an international coach operator offering low-cost fares to and from London (stopping in France and Belgium on the way). The ferry crossing to Great Britain is included in the ticket price. Coaches stop at Amsterdam Sloterdijk.
As well as the major coach parking areas at Amsterdam Sloterdijk and Amsterdam Amstel many tour operators make use of coach parking or drop-off points in the city centre (such as Prins Hendrikkade and Museumplein). As many of the spots in the city centre are limited to short drop-off periods, it is recommended that you request departure and arrival information directly from your operator or driver.
