Frequency on Stib’s underground, tram, bus and Noctis network will be improved from September onwards, announced the Brussels’ public transport company on Monday. As of August 31st, Stib will be putting on more services on about 20 different lines.

On weekdays, evening peak times will be extended on 4 underground lines and on Saturday mornings, the frequency of lines 2 and 6 will be increased from 10:00am onwards. Trams on the number 82 line will increase during off-peak periods, as will number 81 on Saturday mornings and number 55 on Sunday mornings.

Peak hours will be extended in the mornings on bus services 47, 50, 57, 59 and 64, and evenings on services 50 and 57. From August 31st, service 57, which usually only called in on the northern canal-side zone (Tour&Taxis, IBGE, military hospital) during peak times, will also serve this zone during weekday off-peak periods.

There will also be a new stop on line 53, just in front of Brussels’ UZ hospital polyclinic. More buses will be in service on lines 21, serving the airport, and on lines 29 and 63 in the evenings and on Sundays, and on lines 49 and 50 on Wednesday afternoons.

The extremely busy 84 service, where spare seats have been rare since increased ridership between Berchem Station and Beekkant, will now terminate at Berchem Station and service 87’s route will be extended to take on Beekkant underground station. Stib is also improving frequency on Noctis services N05, N08 and N09.
