Transport guarantee (VG)

People receiving social benefits or a guaranteed income

People receiving social benefits and equivalent, or people resident in a local reception centre (LOI) can purchase a 12-month Buzzy Pazz or Omnipas for 45 euro. De Lijn will send them a bank transfer based on a file with entitled parties that is received from the institutions concerned.
Senior citizens with a guaranteed income or secure income can also apply for a VG travel pass based on a certificate issued by the National Pension Office [Rijksdienst voor Pensioenen].

Asylum seekers

Asylum seekers have a right to the transport guarantee (VG). Fedasil (Federal Agency for the Reception of Asylum seekers), the Red Cross or Refugee work Flanders apply for the VG network passes. We send a bank transfer form.

Youths supported by a department of Special Child Welfare

Young people in Supported Independent Living can request a reduced VG network pass. The VG network pass is a Buzzy Pazz that costs 45 euro for one year. Youths can only request this pass via Special Child Welfare. We then send a bank transfer form. Those entitled can pay using the bank transfer form provided or drop into the Lijnwinkel.

  • Holders of a 'certificate of increased compensation for medical care' (maximum three months old), the so-called OMNIO-certificate, issued by a recognised health insurance
  • Holders of a valid card for increased compensation from the NMBS. If entitled you can obtain this card free of charge from any NMBS station.
  • Bearers of a valid WIGW card (widows, invalids, pensioners and orphans).
