Schiphol working on better public transport facilities

The number of travellers coming to Schiphol by public transport is rapidly growing. Schiphol is therefore working hard to improve public transport facilities, a project known as Multimodal Hub Schiphol (MHS). There will be improved facilities at Plaza and at the airport’s train and bus station. The MHS project is made up of five sub-projects. Schiphol is carrying out this project together with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, Amsterdam Transport Authority, Haarlemmermeer Municipality, NS and ProRail.
