Getting Around

There is a fast and efficient transport network in Delft which comprises buses, trams, trains and taxis. The buses are clean, comfortable and reliable. If you are staying and travelling around the town for anything more than a day or two it is easier to buy an OV-chipkaart. To use this you just load up the card with funds at a train station or the tourist information or participating hotels and shops and swipe the card at the terminal as you get on and off of the bus. This will automatically deduct the correct amount from your card. if you are only there for the day it is possible to pay the driver or buy tickets from coin machines at the train terminals.

There are only 2 tramlines in Delft, so it is not easy to get lost. If you are going to or from The Hague you will need to catch the number 1 tram that goes through the centre of the town, the journey is very short and in a very brief time, you will arrive at your destination.

Taxis operate at a standard rate that is fixed throughout the country and is clean and well-regulated. You can find them at taxi stands, flag them down on the road, or telephone one of the operating firms to be picked up. Driving is not really easy around Delft as much of the old city is close to cars and parking is expensive. Probably the easiest way to travel around the town is to do like the locals do and go by bicycle. You can hire bikes cheaply in Delft, but you will need some ID and to pay a deposit first.
