Schiphol Airport Plans to Upgrade Its Various Modes of Transportation by 2027

Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam is gearing up to enhance its ground transportation infrastructure with a significant upgrade to its bus station and railway connections. This initiative aims to streamline accessibility for travellers using various modes of transportation.

Over the next few years, Schiphol plans to revamp its bus station, introducing a modern covered platform with 20 stops and three stairways connecting it to the train station. Scheduled for completion by 2027, this project aligns with the airport’s goal of promoting sustainable travel and increasing public transport usage.

In addition to the bus station overhaul, Schiphol will construct a new bicycle parking facility capable of accommodating 500 bikes.

Sybren Hahn, executive director of Schiphol Infrastructure, said, “Currently, around half of travellers come here by public transport. Our aim is for that amount to increase and to keep on making transportation to and from Schiphol more sustainable.”

“That requires investment in the bus station, so that travellers can transfer between the various modes of transport – plane, train, bus, bicycle, taxi, shared transport and car – more easily in the future.”

The renovation aims to make it easier for travellers to navigate between train platforms and the bus station, reflecting a broader strategy of promoting efficient, interconnected transportation networks.
