Do you use public transport in Amsterdam? If so, you can use the GVB app to quickly see the departure times for trams, day and night buses, metros, and ferries. See your travel route and what time you will reach your destination and whether there are scheduled diversions or current disruptions on your route.
If you input your favorite route(s) and stop(s) and then something happens that affects your routes or stops, you will receive an alert notification. In Dutch, this is called a “Seintje”.
If you have location detection enabled, you always know what routes and stops are located near you and the associated current departure times.
