Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Renovate Bus Station

The bus station at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) is set to be renovated to improve accessibility to the airport by public transport.

The new facility will include a large, covered bus platform and three new stairways connecting the bus and train stations. A new bicycle parking facility will also be constructed with room for 500 bikes.

This renovation is expected to be complete by 2027.

The bus station’s new covered island will have 20 stops, thus providing space for more buses. In addition, the site will provide travellers with more room when waiting for a bus.

Crucially, the renovated bus station at Schiphol Airport will also make it easier for travellers to transfer between train and bus services, as three new stairways will connect the bus station to the train platforms below. Gates will be placed near these stairways so that public transport users can check in and out.

Sybren Hahn, Executive Director Schiphol Infrastructure said:

“At Schiphol we continue to work on good accessibility for everyone who travels to, from and via the airport. 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. Schiphol is a real hub where various forms of mobility come together, and we want to keep facilitating that for our travellers and employees.”

Initial works on the new bus station will commence in May 2024. This will include constructing a temporary bicycle shed and laying cables and pipes. In October 2024, construction work will then begin on the bus station in phases.

Travellers at Schiphol will be able to continue using the bus station during this project, but many bus stops will be moved to a temporary location. All wayfinding and bus stop information will be adjusted accordingly during this time.

This renovation is part of the airport’s Multimodal Hub Schiphol (MHS) project, which will also address the lifts, escalators and stairs between Schiphol Plaza and the train platforms. What’s more, a new arrival passage has been built where crew transport, ride-hailing apps and courier services are being relocated.
