To get there, take bus 12 from the Central Station and get off at bus stop 'Stadion Galgewaard'. Cross the road and you're at the sliproad!
Another spot is an on-ramp on the A27 near the ''Veemarkthallen''. Take bus #5 from central station towards ''Voordorp''. Get off at ''Kemal Ataturkstraat'' and take bus #77 towards [[Bilthoven]]. Get off at P+R Veemarkt. [[User:Europeangirl|Europeangirl]] usually uses this spot and it takes her between 1 to 30 minutes to get a ride. [[User:RedExergy|RedExergy]] heavily recommends this spot as well. Cars do not drive fast and it is really easy and safe for drivers to pull over and stop.'''UPDATE:''' As of October 2014 there is no more brokedown lane making difficult for cars to stop. [[User:ronaldsnb|Ron]] used this place many times in the past going towards Germany or Belgium and always worked great. Instead of a short wait (or no waiting at all) I had to wait a couple of hours to find a ride. Alternatively there , you can take bus 55 in the direction ''Maartensdijk '' and get off at the stop ''Nieuwe wetering' '. From there you are able to walk to a petrol station directly on the A27. Beware though, you have to walk for about 1 kilometer next to the motorway and a hitchhiker once got a 90 euro ticket 90€ fine for that, other than that but otherwise it's a great starting place to go south direction [[Paris]] (A27) as well as [[Luxembourg]] (A2) (Note: Looking at the satellite image on Google Maps, there seems to be some bush-bush bushes between the A27 and the railway parallel to it, walking in this strip as far as possible from the A27 '''may''' just keep you out of view!)

== Sleeping ==
If you get stranded in Utrecht you can stay at the Strowis Budget Hostel (Boothstraat 8) It's in the middle of the city. The Boothstraat is a side street of the Voorstraat. It's priced at 15 euro a night. For all you outside sleepers therewild camping, it's best to stay at the university area (De Uithof) . Take bus 11 or 12 at from the main train station in Utrecht (Utrecht Centraal Station) and you will know where to get out when you see the large school buildings. There are great spots to camp there and little to no guards. It's pretty far away from the city center , so you should be able to sleep pretty safe there.
Alternatively you can ask the friendly people at the local vegan café if they know anywhere you can stay for free:
''ACU, Voorstraat 71'', cheap vegan food is served on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
== Other useful info == === Free Internet === 
The main Library in Utrecht has a computer that you can use without paying for the internet. It's on the second floor, and as you face the room, there is a row of three computers in front of you (but behind the desk of the person who works there). The one that works for free is at the end of the row on the right from the perspective of sitting at the computer.
