In the subway now yes. Most likely they will be banned in the future if the new metro opens, because problably too many people will use it to cross the river IJ by taking the bike in the metro. For trams they are banned with the exception of line 26. This line is a fast tram line that connects the central station with a distant new residential area called IJburg.

Oké, lol that tram is really old, they are being used on sundays during daytime & you need A special (paper) ticket. (there's no ov-chipcard using there..)

I am not sure, but i believe that these trams are not operated during the winterseason or on sundays with harsh winds.

These really old trams were once used by gvb, but are now operated by volunteers of the Amsterdam trammuseum.
Which is located -how very convenient- next to the biggest tramdepot in Amsterdam.
There even is A special -serviced- rail that connects the 2 in case the trammuseum gets A new erm.. old gvbtram.

The museum also does the maintenance on these trams if I am not mistaken.

GVB alows these old trams on the regular system.

Personally, I think it's a good idea to preserve those trams, it's part of the history of Amsterdam.

The metro-tunnels underneath the city of Amsterdam are finished. In theory it's possible to walk 9.7 km along the North|South line.

Judging from the graffiti this isn't the first tunnel walk.

Still, great to see progress!

It's true, the tunnel with the graffiti is North Amsterdam and this part of the tunnel is finnished a long time ago. This part was easy to construct because its built in nobodies land and not under the historical center of Amsterdam.

First brand new metro in service.

The new Alstom Metropolis will eventually replace the 35 year old metro's.

Picture update time
All photos are from the Noordzuidlijn/Dienst Metro website
Ordered from older to newer;



image hosted on flickr

De voetgangerstunnel onder het Stationsplein by Noord/Zuidlijn, on Flickr

They have started investigating the possibilities of rebuilding a direct passage from the Central Station hall to the new metro hall. (it was originally built from the station hall to the other side of the road in front of the station that had busy traffic)



New floodgates in the tunnel at the IJ-side of Central Station

This is what an East Line extention would look like:

One track would go right through the North-South Line hall, right above the escalators.



Paving machine started working on the floor for the tracks. A contest winner got to name it Paverotti.(lol)

Work being done on:

1,2)New quays and fencing
3)New sluice floor under the Nieuwe Brug (New Bridge)
4)Opening of the bridge for boat traffic on November 7th 2013 (mainly used for canal boats)
5)Demolition of working platform and 6) the other bridge



Drawings of the possible future Sixhaven station, with possibilities for a line extention going northwest towards Zaanstad. (Click here for a PDF file with bigger and more drawings)


Works going on at the future entrance of De Pijp station.

1 2
Temporary structure to support the roof in the 4 story parking garage above the De Pijp station(1), which will finally all be replaced by these new wall collumns(2).


Finishing the quay around the emergency exit at Damrak (right across Central Station).


August 2013 vs. December 2013 at Muntplein.


First ceiling panels are going up at the new metro ticket hall, entrance still under construction.

What is the status of the southern extension of Noordzuidlijn towards Schiphol?

Not even a plan to start excavating after they open the 1st sector?

I once read about some plans to create a sub-lake line with even a station in Pampus Eijland on the way to Almere as well.

The status is that it would be a waste of money. There are already train tracks parallel to that proposed metro line.

Extending the metro towards Amstelveen, replacing the (future) tramlines there, makes much more sense.
