    The Brussels inter-communal transport company, STIB, will adapt its Saturday scheduled to enable as many people as possible to participate in the main festivities that will take place in and around the Royal Park, the STIB announced on Monday on its Internet website. Twelve tramlines and bus lines will be limited or modified on Saturday, STIB said.

    Bus No.27 will not circulate between Mérode and Gare du Midi. Lines 29, 63, 65 and 66 will not be running between Madou and De Brouckère, while Line 33 between upper Brussels and lower Brussels will not run.

    The No. 38 bus will not be running between Trône and the Gare Centrale. The No. 54 will not circulate between Bailli and Trône. Travellers will be able to go to the Bailli stop, from where the busses will continue to run up to Louise.

    Bus No. 95 will not run between Trône and Grand-Place. From Trône, the buses will continue on to Louise.

    The Parc metro station will be closed to the public during the traditional military parade. STIB advises travellers to get off at Arts-Loi or Gare Central to make their way to the festivities.

    To avoid travellers missing the fireworks at 2300 hours (11 p.m.), the STIB will keep many of the lines working until 1 a.m. These are the four subway lines, tramlines Nos. 3 and 4, and bus lines 19,32, 92 and 93.

    The 11 lines of the Noctis bus will be working until 03.00 a.m.
