How do I buy or extend it?

  • In the Lijnwinkel
    You present your identity card, pay and take your pass with you immediately. To save time you can download the Buzzy Pazz or Omnipas application form from www.delijn.be in advance. You are always free to choose the start date of your pass. If you are buying a new pass, then the start date can be a maximum of 100 days in the future.
  • Payment via the bank
    Once you have a pass, we will send you a letter about a month before  the expiry date of your pass for the extension. If De Lijn has already sent you a bank transfer  form then you can renew your current pass by making the payment. After registration of your payment, will be sent a new pass within seven days. If you would like to change the start date or period of validity of your pass, contact the Pass Department before making the payment.

How to use it?
Every time you board you show the driver your pass. You must always be able to show your travel pass and ID card during a ticket inspection.

Lijn card (€14 - trip price €1,40)

If you take the bus or tram now and then, choose a Lijn card. With a Lijn card you can make several journeys.

How to use it?

Each time you get on or transfer, you must validate your ticket. If several people use the same Lijn card then you must validate for each person. If the valid duration (60 minutes) expires while you are on the vehicle, you may end the journey. So you do not have to get off nor buy another ticket.

Where can you purchase one?

  • Presale point e.g. newsagents, supermarkets, railway stations, service stations
  • Automated ticket machine (at tram stops, major bus stations)
  • Lijnwinkel
  • NOT for sale on the bus or tram

Single ticket (€3)

If you only take the tram or bus a few times a year, it's best to purchase a ticket. A ticket is valid for a single journey, with a transfer if necessary.

How to use it?
You must validate your ticket every time you get on or transfer. The single ticket will give a timed price of 60 minutes within which you can make unlimited changes. After 60 minutes you can complete your journey, but can no longer change.

Where can you purchase one?

  • Automated ticket machine
  • Lijnwinkel
  • From the driver on the bus or tram

SMS ticket (SMS ticket price €1,80 + communication fee €0,15)

Most mobile phone operators provide the option of buying an SMS-ticket for De Lijn. You should buy one ticket per person. For several people you can pay using the same mobile phone, if you keep it with you for the entire trip. 

Sms the order code DL to the short number 4884.

  1. You will receive a confirmation SMS that is valid as a ticket for travel.
  2. The SMS ticket is invoiced via the mobile phone bill or deducted from the calling credit.
  3. During the period of validity (60 minutes) of the SMS ticket there is no restriction on changes. If the trip takes longer, you will have to buy a new SMS ticket or another type of ticket.

Day pass (1, 3, 5 days)

A day pass or multiple days pass is the cheapest ticket if you travel with our buses or trams frequently for 1 or several consecutive days.

(presale: Lijnwinkel, some automated ticket machines, newsagents/supermarkets...)
Type Presale On bus or tram
Day pass € 5.00 € 7.00
Three day pass € 10.00 € 12.00
Five day pass € 15.00 € 18.00

Group ticket (+5 people)

The group ticket is intended for groups of five or more who travel together for the entire journey. We always ask that you avoid peak times. Travelling in groups is therefore best after 08:45 a.m. and not between 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Journey price per person Period of validity
€ 1.20 60 minutes

Where can you purchase one?

  • Lijnwinkel
  • From the driver on the bus or tram
