To Drift 10
On foot: Utrecht Central Station – Drift (20 minutes)
The CLARIN Office is located in the centre of Utrecht and if the weather is good, you can walk from Utrecht Central Station to the CLARIN ERIC Office, which is actually a nice walk through the beautiful city centre. Please view the walking route.
By bus: Utrecht Central Station – Drift (5-10 minutes)
The CLARIN ERIC Office can easily be reached by bus from Utrecht Central Station. You can buy a ticket on the bus from the bus driver (no cash, cards only) or make use of the OV Chip card (for details on how to use it: see Wikipedia).
Buses leave from the centre side (Centrumzijde) of the station (bus platform A) and from the other side (Jaarbeurszijde, bus platform D). Platform A is closer to the centre, but buses leaving from there are often very crowded or very small. We would normally recommend to go to platform D.
For platform D go to exit “Jaarbeurszijde” (beyond railway track 21). From there you can take the following buses:
- line 4 - direction "Voordorp" (from D2, get off at "Janskerkhof", 3rd stop)
- line 8 - direction "Wilhelminapark via Diakonessenhuis" (from D2, get off at "Janskerkhof", 3rd stop)
- line 55 - direction "Maartensdijk via Tuindorp" (from D2, get off at "Janskerkhof", 3rd stop)
- line 77 - direction "Bilthoven Station" (from D2, get off at "Janskerkhof", 2nd stop)
For platform A go to exit "Centrumzijde" (beyond tracks 1-4). From there you can take the following buses:
- line 2 - direction "Museumkwartier" (from A2, get off at "Janskerkhof", 3rd stop)
- line 28 - direction "Science Park P+R" (from A4, get off at "Janskerkhof", 3rd stop)
From bus stop “Janskerkhof” you need to cross the street to Drift (by the water). Drift 10 is located at the end of the street on your left hand side.
On your way back you can take all buses from Janskerkhof going back in the direction of the Central Sation, except line 27.
