Where is Science Park Amsterdam?
The park is located just to the east of Amsterdam, on the north-east section of the Watergraafsmeer polder in the borough of Oost/Watergraafsmeer. The site itself is bounded by the A10 Amsterdam ring road, the Amsterdam-Weesp railway line and the Ringvaart canal. This makes it a distinct and unique location. The park has a total area of some 70 hectares.

The OV-chipkaart (PT Smart Card) is the new way to pay for public transport. Not just in Amsterdam, but everywhere in the Netherlands, you will soon be able to travel using just one card, whether it is in the train, bus, tram or metro. The OV-chipkaart is the size of a credit card and has a built-in chip. You can reload this as often as you like, with a balance in euros or with a season ticket. From 1 January 2009 you will only be able to use the OV-chipkaart to pay for public transport.
