Travel by train
Using public transportation to get to National PhD Day 2016 is highly recommended. Fortunately, the NS offers a group discount for people who are traveling together with the same destination (Utrecht Central Station). This NS Group Return Ticket can be used in groups with a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 10. Depending on the size of your group, the ticket will cost between €7,00 -€13,75 per person. For more detailed information on pricing and conditions, check the NS website.

Parking facilities in Utrecht

For those of you traveling by car, Utrecht has a few parking options. Please keep in mind that parking in the city center is limited and expensive. Better alternatives are using one of the Park & Ride Transferiums (listed on the map) which offer parking and a round trip to the city center by tram for only 5 euro/day (max. 5 persons/car). These Transferiums are situated on the borders of the city.
