The Terminal is also less than 50 km away from Utrecht, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

How to Get There

Take the Shuttle! We highly recommend you take advantage of this service if you are staying near the city centre as it is a free and convenient way to get from this area to the venue.

Bus shuttles will be leaving from the Central Bus Station (Busplatform Den Haag Centraal) to the Fokker Terminal and back during the commuting times of the Connectathon week:

  • Monday - Wednesday: 7.30 AM - 8.30 AM, 6 PM - 7 PM
  • Thursday: 7.30 AM - 8.30 AM, 5.30 PM - 6.30 PM
  • Friday: 7.30 AM - 8.30 AM, 1.30 PM - 2.30 PM

There will be 2 buses driving back and forth from the venue. It will take around 20 minutes for a shuttle to come back to the bus platform. In total 2 shuttle buses will drive 3 times within that hour.

Below is an aerial view of the station so you can see where the bus platform is (A). Please note that you will need to take the stairs to get to the bus platform.

Also please see the picture below so you can recognise the shuttle- "Fokker Terminal Pendelbus." A Central Bus Station steward will also be present on the bus platform if you are having any trouble finding the shuttle.
