Toverland uses shuttle bus: easy access by public transport this summer
The Province of Limburg and Toverland are using a special shuttle bus this summer holiday which runs from Horst-Sevenum station. The theme park is accessible by public transport every day this summer thanks to this shuttle bus, which is a supplement to Arriva’s regular bus service. The new timetable starts on 1 July. Travellers are able to order a cheap combi-deal for train, bus and entrance to Toverland via website ns.nl/spoordeelwinkel.
Currently, it’s impossible to reach Theme park Toverland by bus from the nearest Horst-Sevenum train station during weekends and in the evenings. This changes from 1 July. The regular weekly bus service (Arriva route 79) continues for an extra hour in the evening. The last bus then leaves for Horst-Sevenum station at 19:47. This means that both visitors and staff members of Toverland have easier access to the theme park by bus and also helps them with the return trip. A special shuttle bus (route 179) is used during the weekends.
Carin van Berkel, Commercial Director Toverland, is very pleased with this development. “The expansion of Toverland also increased the number of guests and staff members who want to visit Toverland by public transport. Good accessibility by public transport is essential for our visitors and staff. It fits both within our ambitions to grow as well as our aim for sustainability.” The Province of Limburg contributes to the realisation of this shuttle bus together with Toverland. The special shuttle bus service is carried out by transport company Arriva.
Shuttle bus timetable
The shuttle bus operates during weekends from Saturday 6 July until Sunday 1 September, which is two weeks longer than last year. Toverland is open every day from 10:00 until at least 18:00 hours during this period. The timetable of the shuttle bus is adjusted to the theme park’s opening times. Toverland remains open until 23:00 hours during the Midsummer Evenings, which take place from 17 July until 17 August every Wednesday and Saturday. The shuttle also bus operates on those evenings. The timetable can be found on both Arriva and NS travel planners and also via 9292.nl.
