There are multiple options to travel from Schiphol to Amsterdam. The cheapest (and probably the most convenient) option is to travel to Amsterdam Central Station by train. The Schiphol train station is located directly beneath the airport and has trains to Amsterdam every 10 - 15 minutes. Train tickets can be bought at the ticket desk of NS (Dutch Railways) at Schiphol Airport or by using an NS ticket machine. You can also buy an e-ticket online through this website, which also has more information on train travel between Schiphol and Amsterdam. A one-way trip between Schiphol and Amsterdam Central Station should cost you €4 and will take 20 minutes.

International trains will arrive at/depart from Amsterdam Central Station. International train tickets can be booked here.

We do not recommend to come to Amsterdam by car as traffic can be hectic and rates for parking are the highest in Europe (up to €50/day).
