If you take the bus or tram now and then, choose a Lijn card. With a Lijnkaart you can make several journeys. A Lijnkaart is 25% to 50% cheaper than a ticket. If you travel with at least 5 people then the Lijnkaart % is the cheapest method.

You purchase a Lijnkaart or a Lijnkaart % in our sales points.
The Jump suburban/city card can be purchased in the vehicles of De Lijn (Brussels city zone), in the vehicles of the MIVB (Brussels city zone) and in MIVB sales points (Brussels city zone).
Regarding zones there are 2 fares:
If you choose 1 zone in the short distance fare then you can ride within the zone where you boarded.
If you choose 2 zones then you can ride in the zone where you boarded and a adjacent zone.
If your journey covers 3 or more zones then you pay the long distance fare.

You didn't purchase a ticket before boarding? Board at the front and purchase a ticket from the driver. Please pay the exact amount. You cannot pay with a note larger than a 10-euro note.
Tickets that cost more than 10 euros, can be paid for with a 20-euro note. For example:
You can only pay with a note of more than 10 euros or the driver cannot make change? Then you must complete a 'passenger without exact money' form. You have two weeks to pay for the journey via bank transfer (without administration costs). If you wait too long, you will receive a fine .
When transferring, stick the Lijnkaart in the ticket validation machine once again and enter the number of zones that you want to travel with that vehicle. The machine calculates whether you need to pay more.
If several people use the same Lijnkaart then you must validate for each person. You do not need to do this when transferring: in that case you only need to validate the card once. If several people use the same Lijnkaart then they must travel together for the entire journey. If someone gets off earlier, make sure that the Lijnkaart stays in the possession of those who continue the journey.
The second column of the table below shows how long your ticket is valid. If the validity period expires while you are on the vehicle, you can finish the journey. You do not have to get off. You are not allowed to travel further than the zones that you paid for. The validity period is determined by the number of zones that you entered.
|Number of zones||Maximum duration journey|
|1 or 2||1 hour|
|3 and more||90 minutes|
