The ticket (QR code) for the Amsterdam Airport shuttle proved difficult to access from the email the app had sent me (the staff at the Schiphol kiosk had to help me find it, and that held up a queue of people behind me). Aside from that, the public transport tickets worked well.

Like other reviewers we also had issues at the airport trying to board the 397 bus. After much to-big and fro-ing with the man in the van the agent working at the stop agreed we could use it and we boarded. Tickets worked well all throughout our stay. But of course it didn’t work on the return journey. Having said that the bus was packed and we boarded at the middle door, so just walked on!

First time travelers using this card should be told the following: 1. The only red bus that you can use on the GVB card is the airport shuttle. Otherwise only blue buses, trams and metro. 2. You can't check in and out of the airport shuttle using your GVB card as the card reader doesn't pick it up, so don't be concerned about that. 3. When using ordinary (blue) buses, check in next to the driver and not through the middle doors.
