Transportation in Brussels


Parking isn't always easy and Brussels' streets are labyrinthine. It's nonetheless worth knowing that Cambio (28 rue Fossé aux Loups) offers a car-sharing service for frequent travellers.


Catch taxis at major ranks (around the Bourse and De Broukère). Since the naming of Brussels' tiny streets is sometimes counter-intuitive (one side of the wide space near Avenue Louise is called Boulevard de Waterloo, the other Toison d'Or – Golden Fleece), you may need to help the driver find your destination. Drivers don't expect a tip, but will welcome one.


Brussels is too small for an extensive metro system but its three lines are useful for main stops like Bourse (for the Grand'Place) and Midi (for the Gare du Midi). Metro stations are marked with a white ‘M' on a blue background.


Bus route maps are available at stations and people waiting at stops are usually happy to help. If you don't have a travel card, you can pay with cash on boarding. The airport-line bus links Brussels Airport with central Brussels in 30 minutes. Night bus N71 runs until 3am on Friday night.


Walking is often the quickest and most pleasant way to get around. Wear flat heels for the cobbled Grand'Place area.

Rent your car

From Brussels' circular R0 motorway, several roads lead into the petite ceinture circular road around the city centre, home to most of Brussels' attractions. To ease congestion, the speed limit around the Grand Place is limited to 30km/hour. City centre car parks fill early, while street parking is often time-restricted.

Transportation tips

One ticket is valid for multiple journeys across the network (metro, pré-métro and bus) for one hour. Buy a travel card of five or ten journeys or invest in a Day Travelcard. Stamp your ticket in the little orange machines to validate it, with the arrow facing down and towards you, and make sure you know the name of your station in both French and Flemish so you don't miss your stop – the Gare du Midi (French) is Zuidstation in Flemish.
