In the plans for the rebuilding of Rotterdam there's been a lot of attention for transport. Rotterdam was to be a city with separated areas for offices, industry and living. The plan therefore incorporated broad motorways, bicycle paths and pedestrian areas. Even today the centre is very accessible, though parking space is becoming more and more of a problem. There are three public transport options: trams, busses and subways. A taxicab can be hailed if the sign is not lit or at a taxistand.

Taxis are rather expensive in the Netherlands; Rotterdam is no exception.
Unlike in most other Dutch cities, where you're not supposed to hail cabs, but find yourself a taxi stand instead and call from there, in Rotterdam you can also hail one when the sign on the roof is lit.
Most cafes and restaurants will also be happy to call you a taxi when you're leaving, just ask.
Rotterdamse Taxi Centrale RTC is a former monopolist. Taxi Rotterdam is a more recent competitor and seems to be slightly cheaper.
RTC offers an Airport-Taxi Direct online calculator more..

Boat

A system of high speed water taxis ferries passengers to and from any destination along the river.

The "Spido" company operates sightseeing boats through the port, and there is a fast-ferry service to Krimpen, Ridderkerk, Alblasserdam and Dordrecht, using hydrofoils. Both Spido and Fast ferry dock at de Willemskade, below the Erasmus Bridge.

Car

Edit This

When you are visiting Rotterdam you can also choose to travel by car, although it isn't a very fast way of traveling here. You are likely to get in a traffic jam because the roads are often busy, especially around the centre.

Within the ring road of Rotterdam you'll have to pay for parking on nearly all streets, even the smaller streets far way from city centre. The best way to travel into Rotterdam is by public transport, f.e. by train or subway.
