    Is there a pass U can buy rather than buying the tickets for the A'dam transportation?

    If so, how much is it? And is it worth it for a 1 week stay?

    Thanks in advance,

    FZ


    P.S.: That ticket stuff is pretty damn confusing....LOL

    NATIONAL 'STRIPPEN CARD'
    The 'Strippen Card' is valid throughout the country for travel on buses, trams and subways. It is also valid on trains which travel within the city boundaries of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and The Hague/Zoetermeer.
    Holland has been divided into transportation zones with set tariffs. To travel one zone you have to pay two 'strips'. You pay an extra 'strip' for each subsequent zone. Within the same zone you may change within a time limit mentioned on the back of the card.

    You can buy a 'Strippen Card' with 15 strips (EUR 6.40) or with 45 strips (EUR 18.90). You can buy 'Strippen Cards' at railway stations, in post offices, department stores and tobacconists. You can also buy it on the tram or bus, but the price is quite a bit higher.
