By train from Schiphol Airport to Utrecht Central Station

The train station is located directly under Schiphol Plaza. There are two types of train tickets available for traveling with the NS (Dutch Railways): a single-use chipcard or an OV chipcard. Both are available at the yellow ticket machines with the blue overhead sign reading ‘train tickets’ or at the Tickets & Service desk located close to the red and white-checked cube at Schiphol Plaza.

With both types of tickets you are required to check in at the train station and check out again when you arrive at your destination. Trains depart every 15 minutes from Schiphol Airport to Utrecht Central Station (either in the direction of Heerlen or Nijmegen). It takes about thirty minutes and a one-way ticket costs € 8.50. Plan your trip at the NS website or download the NS app (the app is only available in Dutch).

By bus from Utrecht Central Station to the conference venue

To travel by bus you also need a single-use chipcard or an OV chipcard. Single-use chipcards for the bus are available at the silver machines at train station and near the bus station at Utrecht Central Station.

Take bus 28 (to P+R De Uithof) or bus 8 (to Wilhelminapark) and get off at the third stop named Janskerkhof. The bus ride will take about seven minutes.

For all public transport the 9292 website and the 9292 app are very helpful (the app is only available in Dutch).
