Bus Line 44 connects Rotterdam-South to the central part of Rotterdam. On the southern part, the buses run through the Charlois District before reaching bus station Zuidplein. On the northern side of the river, the route goes along the Zoo (Diergaarde Blijdorp) and the Museum District. Bus line 44 starts or ends at Rotterdam Central Station.
Line 44 can be quite busy, especially on weekdays. Many students use this bus to get to the schools at Dijkzigt.
There are plans to replace line 44 with a faster, more frequent bus line. The current buses are often delayed because of traffic jams. Especially when there is congestion on the roads to the Maastunnel.
A new line would get its own lane and way fewer stops. This would allow passengers to travel faster between north and south. The new bus line will start running in 2022 at the earliest.Back to Transport
