Expensive
The actual costs of the metro line as well as the proposed changes in existing bus and tram lines have changed since the proposal: a clear cut case of 'bait and switch'. The portion of the costs to be borne by the city's taxpayer at the time of the referendum was 75 million guilders, with the rest of the costs and potential cost overruns to be paid by the central Dutch government. Amsterdam taxpayers now face a bill of over 800 million guilders, as well as the responsibility for all cost overruns.
