While in Brussels

Public Transport

Public transport in Brussels is run by the STIB/MIVB. Their website allows you to look up timetables and plan your trips. The routing can also be done in Google Maps by selecting the public transport option.

Standard STIB tickets can be used to take the metro, bus/night-bus and tram, and they are valid within the whole of the Brussels-Capital Region (except for the Airport line). Tickets must be validated at each boarding and remain valid during 1 hour.

Transport tickets can be purchased at any metro station as well as by the main bus/tram stops (at the GO vending machines). Most supermarkets and newspaper shops (showing this logo) also sell STIB tickets. The most favourable and simple option is probably to purchase 10-journey (14 Euros) or 5-journey (8 Euros) "JUMP" tickets.

Note that in addition to the STIB, there are two other public transport companies operating within Brussels: TEC (operating in the Region of Wallonia) and De Lijn (operating in the Region of Flanders). These companies only operate buses and in principle you will not need to use any of them within Brussels.

Tourism
