The arrival of US President Donald Trump in Belgium and the special NATO meeting scheduled for Thursday will have an impact on the movement of public transport in Brussels. As of Wednesday afternoon, access to some metro stations will be reduced. On Thursday, the Schuman station will be completely closed. Several lines of trams and buses operating on the route between the airport of Zaventem and the centre of Brussels will also be redirected, said An Van Hamme, spokesman of the STIB/MIVB, on Monday.

The US president will arrive in Belgium on Wednesday in the late afternoon. As a result, some access to the Arts-Loi, Schuman, Trône, Louise and Porte de Namur metro stations will be closed from Wednesday 14:30 until Thursday 16:30. The Schuman station will remain completely closed on Thursday. The metro will circulate normally.

Between Zaventem Airport and the center of Brussels, bus and tram traffic will be managed in real time and adapted according to the Donald Trump route. “The tram lines 92, 93, 94 and buses in the vicinity of Trône will be particularly impacted,” said STIB/MIVB.

The “Trump not Welcome” protest march organised on Wednesday will also disrupt the surface network of the STIB/MIVB, admits An Van Hamme.
