International Bus Journeys to the Netherlands

Bus journeys in the Netherlands are an efficient way to travel around the country. The bus network here is extensive, however more often than not these are regional or local services. A number of night services are available around the country. In the Netherlands, the most common bus routes are those between the major cities within a province. Longer distance routes are less readily available, and as such, it's much more common to take the train. A bus journey from Amsterdam to Rotterdam, for example, would be significantly faster and easier by intercity train. Operating domestic routes are Qliners, fast buses that connect areas located within a particular province or more immediate surroundings.
