Get around

Maastricht

By car

Maastricht

By bus

The city has a bussing system called the Stadsbus (Literally: "City Bus"), that travels over most of the city and to surrounding areas. You can buy a fare on the bus for the trip, or buy it in advance on a pass called a Strippenkaart "Strip-card".

You can purchase the Strippenkaart at the Train Station, any Post Office or Magazine Shop. There are two denominations, ?6,40 and ?19,20. The lesser of the two has 15 strips on it, and the larger 45. So, each strip costs about ?0,42, and each trip on the bus takes at least 2 strips. So a ride on the bus might cost about ?1. Depending on where you go, the fare increases. This is much cheaper then buying the fare on the bus, as a trip purchased from the driver might cost between ?1,60 and ?2,20.
