History

Construction

The station was built in 1986 when a link was constructed from Amsterdam Centraalmarker to Schiphol Airportmarker. The new line reduced journey times from Centraal Station and Schiphol to as little as 16 minutes. The other stations built on this line were Amsterdam Sloterdijk (rebuilt) and Amsterdam De Vlugtlaanmarker. This last station was closed in May 2000 to enable construction of the Hemboog.

Nederlandse Spoorwegen

For its first 10 years, Intercity trains called at Lelylaan station, providing direct services to places as far away as Brusselsmarker, Berlinmarker and Leeuwardenmarker. From 1996 to 2006, only stopping trains called at this station. In 2006 an intercity service Schiphol-Amsterdam Centraal-Lelystad was introduced, which also calles at Lelylaan.

GVB

The metro platform is an island platform, which has a direct link onto GVB tram line's 1 and 17. The main entrance is further south. In the early 2000s the stairs to the tram lines were closed off with fences to counter fare evasion, which was running high, with people running off the train and straight onto a tram. Early 2007 the gates were opened again, but only during daytime.

Until 1988 the only tram here had been the 1, but in that year the 17 was extended from Surinameplein to Osdorp. The two lines follow different routes into the city centre. In 1997 GVB opened its fourth metro line, the 50 (Isolatorweg - Gein).

The station is also served by a small bus station.

Train Services

Since 1986, train services calling at this station have changed a lot. Since the end of 2003, there is a direct connection to Zaandam and Hoorn.
