Buses and Trains

Most places within Maastricht are easily accessible by bike but the bus is your best bet if you are commuting from Maastricht’s outskirts. Trains, however, are the fastest option for those living in Maastricht’s Heer/Randwyck and Limmel/Nazareth both of which have train stations. Trains are also a better option if you need to travel to another city or country. Although buses stop in nearby cities and towns like Valkenburg or Sittard, they take significantly longer and may even be more expensive. If you’re going to Belgium, you can take the Belgian buses from Maastricht Central station or the train headed to Liège from Maastricht Central station or Maastricht Randwyck station.
