Very easy to collect from the red van outside of the airport. Bus stop is also right in front of you. The lady in the van helped with what stop we needed and the bus does display the upcoming stops. Don't tap in with the 397 to start as this will activate your ticket too soon, use the receipt from the app. We used the Metro which was also easy to navigate and you just tap in and out. Same on the trams.

Essential, we collected the cards at the airport and took the 397 bus to the center without problem. We got on a lot of trains, trams, subways, buses and all great, but the only problem is on the way back to the airport, we tried to get on a 397 bus and the driver literally threw us off the bus and didn't let us explain ourselves or anything in a very bad way. We are at a stop in the middle of nowhere that did not pass another bus to the airport or anything. We decided to try again with the next bus and the driver, who had a friendly face, was more friendly and without problem. You have to show the receipt that they send you to the mail that says shuttle to the airport 397 and the driver seeing the bus number lets you pass without problem. But the cards are well worth it!

I traveled with family and it was a great choice. Moving around with the trams which by the way work very well, I was able to see all the corners of this beautiful city. The only negative note concerns the meeting point for bus 397. In the confirmation email of the purchase of the tickets you receive, DO NOT trust this delivery address "pin_large The day of the activity Meeting Point Unnamed Road, 1118 EK Schiphol, Netherlands" brings you the alder from the real one which by the way is outside the station.
