All about stops and vehicles
The STIB network has more than 2200 stops. They are easy to locate thanks to the post and sign indicating the line and the destination.
To save time at the stops, have your ticket ready. If you have to buy a ticket from the driver, please prepare the precise amount if possible. The driver is not required to change more than €5.
Unlike the metro, which stops in every station, trams and buses stop only on request. Please signal to the driver early enough to let him know that you want to get on his vehicle!
On most vehicles, you control the opening of the doors: either by pulling handles on the doors (metro), or by pressing the green button on the green strip in the middle of the door.
Trams have priority over all users, including pedestrians. You must therefore always give right of way and refrain from walking on a pedestrian crossing when a tram is approaching.
The line number and the destination are indicated on the front of the vehicle, and on some vehicles also on the side. Get on the bus at the front door and show your ticket to the driver. If you do not have a ticket, you can buy one from the driver. Then, make room for the other passengers by moving to the back of the bus and get off at the rear door(s).
