Trams tend to be the preferred way of transportation by locals and tourists in Amsterdam. The trams are managed by the GVB, the Amsterdam Transport Authority, which also deals with the metro, buses and ferries in the city.

Trams have 3700 fares a day, and are the second busiest way of transportation after the metro with42.000 boarders per day. However, this is often at the expense of the good service and the comfort of the passengers.
