Utrecht is a city in the Netherlands.

Hitching Out

North: Amsterdam, Amersfoort, South: Breda, Belgium

There is a liftershalte - a special spot for hitchhiking - at the ramp of the Waterlinieweg near De Galgewaard stadium. It's good for going northwards on the A27 and A28 or southwards on the A12, A2 and A27. Official hitching spot, indicated by a traffic sign with a thumb on it. 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 driveaway!


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. Europeangirl usually uses this spot and it takes her between 1 to 30 minutes to get a ride.
