Few Questions about Amsterdam/Schiphol transport

Jump to last reply

My dad will be traveling to Amsterdam by himself in a couple of weeks. His hotel is near Leidseplein.

1) I read that the GVB office (or is it the tourist office) at Schiphol does not sell the multi-day Amsterdam transport card. [My dad needs a 6-day one.] I guess he'll have to wait until he arrives IN Amsterdam and buy it at the GVB office in Central train station?

2) Has anyone taken Bus 197 from Schiphol into Amsterdam, operated by Connexxion? It appears to be the most direct way for my dad to get from Schiphol to his hotel. I think it costs €4; does the bus driver accept coins/cash?
