As of 2015, SNCB, in collaboration with Regus, will be providing rail users with flexible work spaces, co-working areas and meeting rooms at railway stations, announced SNCB on Wednesday. “These new Regus Express centres in stations will contain business lounges, meeting rooms and offer high speed Wi-Fi. Travellers will be able to work or hold meetings with clients in these centres, a stone’s throw away from the platform,” said SNCB in a statement.
The first centre will open its doors in early January at Liège-Guillemins station. Others will follow during 2015: Antwerp, Bruges, Leuven, Saint-Nicolas, Brussels Central, Brussels Midi and Brussels-Luxembourg.
In recent years, stations have seen substantial changes, says SNCB. As well as offering a range of business services, they are also a “crossroads” where different transport methods meet, such as car and bicycle pooling, car parking and charging points for electric cars.
