Structure and governance
<Voeg een paragraaftitel toe>
De Lijn is the Flemish Region’s partner for urban and regional public transport in, from and to Flanders. It is an external autonomous agency within the Mobility & Public Works policy domain.
De Lijn is a centrally managed organisation with decentralised operations for those services that need to be on the ground and close to the customers. In this way, it contributes to the new Flemish transport model constructed around fifteen transport regions.
In 2019, De Lijn offered approximately 201 million vehicle kilometres. It runs three tram networks (Antwerp, Ghent and the Coastal Tram); about half of the bus services are outsourced to operators.
In 2019 De Lijn had 7.734 employees. In addition there are around 2 400 employees in private companies who drive by order of De Lijn.
