Accessibility by road

Regular bus services connect with Rotterdam, especially at rush hour. Anyone travelling to the city by car will find parking facilities in the many multi-storey car parks. A more convenient option is the Park and Ride (P+R) stations along the motorways around Rotterdam (the A15, A16, A4 and A20). Inside the city, a network of buses, trams, water taxis and the metro maintains excellent connections. Parking places for coaches can be found by Spido, the Euromast and on Coolsingel, as well as other locations throughout the city.

Rotterdam parking meters only accept payment by chip card. Visitors who do not already have a chip card can purchase one at various points in the city, such as tobacconists, car parks and Alternatively, there are always the many multi-storey car parks in the centre of Rotterdam which do accept coins and notes. Moreover, ticket machines at several places in the centre and at major attractions also accept credit cards with the VISA/MasterCard icon.
