Breda to Rijen

by LaurenK Online Now Jan 5, 2009 at 11:50 AM

Hi There,

I'm travelling to The Netherlands in a few weeks to work in Rijen for 3 days. I was hoping to stay in Breda for the duration of my stay rather than in Rijen as there is a better choice of accomodation in Breda. I was wondering how easy it is to get from Breda to Rijen. I know that there is a train station in Rijen but I would still have a relatively long walk in the cold and possible snow to my place of work (Ericsson). How much approx would a taxi to Rijen from Breda cost each day? Or altrenatively is it possible to get a taxi from the Rijen train station to my office?

Thanks in advance,

    According to the public transportation website you can take a train ( 2 per hour) to the Gilze-Rijen station. From there it's a 9 minutes walk to the Ericsson building.

    A day return train ticket = € 4,10.

    An alternative is to take bus #131 of the Veolia company to the Ericssonstraat busstop in Rijen. From there it's a 4 minutes walk.
    A single fare = 5 "strippen" of the "Strippenkaart" (about € 2,43)

    You could contact local VT-member MATIM, who will know more ins and outs.
