Travelling in the Rotterdam area

Do you want to discover the surroundings of Rotterdam? Train, metro, tram, bus and waterbus can take you everywhere. Planning your route is easy via www.9292.nl.

Metro, tram, train & bus

The RET metros go from Rotterdam to The Hague, Spijkenisse and Schiedam. The latter is a neighbouring city and is, therefore, also accessible via the Rotterdam bus and tram lines. You can reach other major cities in the region easily and quickly by train.

RET and other bus companies provide a wide network of bus lines between Rotterdam and various municipalities, even outside of Zuid-Holland. Zuidplein is one of the largest bus stations in the Netherlands, with lines to the Zuid-Holland islands, Zeeland, Bergen op Zoom and Utrecht.

Travel through the water

By Waterbus or spectacular Watertaxi you can travel via the river Maas to various destinations in Zuid-Holland, including Kinderdijk and Schiedam. On the Waterbus, you can use the Tourist Day Ticket and take your bike along for free. The Watertaxi applies its own rates, dependent on the number of zones you travel. A large ferry from OttevangerOV, which can also be used by cars, sails between Rozenburg and Maassluis every 20 minutes. A boat sails every 10 minutes during peak hours.

Travel on public transport

In order to travel by public transport, use a valid public transport card. Look here for more information about the different public transport chip cards from the RET (bus, tram, metro), including 2x one-hour journeys.

Hoek van Holland – Rotterdam Beach

Metro line B takes you from the heart of Rotterdam to Hoek van Holland within 35 minutes. If you arrive by metro from Rotterdam CS or The Hague CS, you have to transfer to line B at metro station Beurs. From metro station Hoek van Holland Haven, shuttle bus 611 goes to Strandweg and the beach.
