Everybody told us that using the P&R facilities in Amsterdam is the best thing you could do when on a day trip to the capital of the Netherlands. You can park your car in a secure area and additionally you get 2 free tickets for the public transportation system to get into the centre and back to your car for only 8€. Yesterday we put the system to a test. We arrived at the P&R at the World Fashion Center where a nice supervisor told us that the public transportation system is on a strike. Out of ten points this leads in the meantime to zero. Okidoki, back in the car, heading towards another P&R with a train connection to Amsterdam Central. And this time the systems scores a flat 10. We even got free train tickets which are normally not included as a compensation.
