After the launch of the MOBIB-card in 2008, STIB now launches the MOBIB Basic-card for its occasional customers.
What is the difference between the MOBIB Basic-card and the normal MOBIB-card?
One big difference: the MOBIB Basic-card is anonymous so neither your name nor photo will appear on the card. You can only load journey or day fares (1 or 10 journeys, Discover Brussels 24h, 48h, 72h…) on it but no season tickets.
Can more than one person share a MOBIB Basic Card when traveling together?
Yes, the card can be used to travel together as a group but you need to have the right contract on it. With a ten journey contract you can validate a journey for each person you are traveling with.
Can I use the MOBIB Basic Card as soon as I receive it?
Yes, once you have your MOBIB Basic Card with a contract on it you can instantly start to travel on our network
Why choose the new MOBIB Basic-card?
You save money all year round
If you only travel on the STIB network, then this card has been created especially for you! The MOBIB journey fares are 10% cheaper than the normal tickets.
- Jump 1 journey = 2 € ≠ MOBIB 1 journey = 1.80 €
- Jump 10 journeys = 13€ ≠ MOBIB 10 journeys = 11.80 €
You will easily recover the cost of € 5 for the MOBIB Basic-card.
What are the advantages of a MOBIB Basic-card?
