Combine this or use it instead of the underground tunnel
Aug 2021
Free public transportation from one side of the river to another. What I didn't like much is waiting time for the next connection, as the waterbus runs every 30 minutes of so. If you miss it, just cross the river using underground tunnel for pedestrians and bikes.

Very easy to take bikes, and the back open area section provides wonderful views and a welcome breeze. Easy to find near Erasmus Bridge.

The waterbus was useful to move from village to village. The transports on the road are slower. In general, they come all the hours and there are sits for everyone

Every time I go to the city of Dordrecht with my puppy, I choose to go on the Waterbus because it is the best option, I enjoy seeing the water.

In the line 20 the service was awful. She didnt help us for the ticket and beside that she looked us she let us to buy the most expensive ticket without telling us anything. The excuse of that it was the corona virus that she couldn't touch the screen.

Use regularly for village visits to friends. Very comfortable and easy to find and use. Wave to Kinderdijk and enjoy the birds using the slip stream.

The crews are super friendly
Sep 2019
We planed a day trip from Rotterdam to Kinderdijk. We took waterbus #20 from Erasmusbrug (Rotterdam) to Kade to rent bikes. When we stopped at De Schans, the captain came to us and asked if we are going to Kinderdijk and we should transfer at this stop if we are. It's very nice that they try to remind tourists not to miss their stops! We use OV chip and have to tap in/out, it's under 3 euro per trip. The overall experience was great.
