New bus connects north of city with Schuman

09:53 25/02/2020

A new Stib bus route will connect Brussels' EU district with Schaerbeek and Neder-Over-Heembeek from next week.

Line 56 begins on Monday 2 March, providing residents in the north of the city with a new link to Schuman metro and train stations.

From Schuman, the bus will cross Schaerbeek via Ambiorix, Dailly, the edge of Josaphat park and the town hall.

It then continues to Docks Bruxsel shopping centre before crossing the canal to Neder-Over-Heembeek, including stops at Nos Pilifs farm and the Queen Astrid military hospital.

The bus finishes at the vast Bpost sorting centre near the Buda bridge, which has until now been inaccessible by public transport.

The new route is part of a bigger overhaul of the Stib's bus network since 2018, which is two-thirds complete. The next stage, in the autumn, includes two new lines from Erasme to Uccle Stalle and from Central Station to Forest National.
