Public transport in the Netherlands:
In the Netherlands travelling by public transport requires an OV chip card; comparable to the Oyster card used in London. You can buy an anonymous OV chip card for €7.50 at the station and charge it with the amount of money you’ll need for your journey; a single journey Schiphol-Duiven will cost you €18.16 without discount. A single journey Arnhem-Duiven is €2.50.
If you don’t plan on travelling any more than just to and from CaDansa, you may be better off buying a one-time ticket at Schiphol (a paper ticket with a chip that can be used once) or (even easier) to just by an e-ticket online in advance. The good part about an e-ticket is that you won’t have the hassle of checking in and out. Buy your e-ticket at the e-ticket machine
Parking in Duiven
CaDansa will take place in the centre of Duiven, where they are working on the roads and new buildings.

Some parking places are marked with a blue line, this means that (during the day) you can only park for 1h30, with a blue card that shows your time of arrival. Pay attention to this, otherwise you might get a fine.
