If you’re planning on getting around by car while in Belgium, you might want to reconsider. Belgium has the dubious honour of being the 27th most congested country in the world. Some cities such as Brussels fare even worse.
Travelling by public transport is a much easier option. The network is extensive, well-maintained, clean and simple to use. The various types of public transport including bus, tram, train and metro system are all integrated which makes it far easier to plan your route.
Children aged under 6yrs travel free on public transport and those under 12 can also travel free on certain adult passes.
