Getting around Delft and to the University by public transport

To find your way around Delft, first go to the Connexxion information stand at Delft railway station to get timetable information and buy a so-called strippenkaart. The number of strips you need depends on the distance you travel. To get from the centre of Delft to the university auditorium (aula) by bus will cost you two strips, the minimum, which covers one zone. On the bus you can buy a ticket of 2, 3 or 8 strips. A 15-strip ticket, which is cheaper in relative terms, may be bought at the information stand or at certain shops. The same ticket may be used for more than one person. It is valid for one year. From the city centre, bus nr. 63, 69 or 129 will take you to the University.

Coming to Delft by private car or motorbike

If you plan to come to Delft by car or motorbike we advise you to have a look at a website such as Mappy to help you plan your route. If you use Google Earth, then you can download this placement file.

Parking in Delft

Visitors are advised to use the official car parks, such as the one in Phoenixstraat. There are several at only a few minutes' walk from the central shopping area. There are almost 1000 spaces in total; just follow the signs to P-route Centrum. For €1.30 per hour or €7.00 per day you can leave your car as long as you like. The parking fee has to be paid when you come to collect your car. The parking spaces in the streets of Delft are clearly marked. Find a parking metre and get a ticket after parking your car. Currently, the rate is €1.50 or €2.00 per hour. There is no maximum daily rate. However, the cheapest option is to park your car in the University area. You might have to search for a space, but since the University is outside the city centre, there is no parking charge.
