Why are tickets more expensive on the bus or tram?
A ticket is more expensive on the bus or tram to encourage our customers as much as possible to buy tickets in advance.
This is because selling tickets on vehicles takes a lot of our drivers' and passengers' time. To recuperate some of that time, we want to sell as many tickets and Lijn cards as possible outside the vehicle. For that reason there are now points of sale throughout Flanders and Brussels.
