M-tickets at the Flemish local transport company De Lijn, which can be purchased online via website or app, rise from 1.80 euro to 2 euros. The ten-trip m-card will set you back 16 euros instead of 15.
Season tickets and passes too become pricier too.
Belgium’s publicly-owned rail company NMBS too is sticking with tradition this year. On average fares rise 2%. There’s an even steeper hike for Youth Holiday Passes that allow under 27s unlimited travel during the holidays for either a week or a month. Multi-journey tickets become more expensive too. Avoid this last price increase by purchasing online instead of a paper version.
Singles and returns for seniors, youngsters and bikes escape the price increase.
