Unlimited public transport
If you order the "Brussels Card + public transport" version from the ordering banner, you can then freely use all buses, trams and metro lines in Brussels area.
However your Brussels Card can’t be used as a transport ticket. You need to get tickets that can be validated by the bus/tram/metro from a ticket machine that are placed at metro stations and bus/tram stops. On the ticket machine screen just select “event pass” and enter the numbers printed on your Brussels Card. The machine will then print out paper tickets for validation.
Versions of Brussels Card
The Brussels Card can be purchased in forms of 24-hour, 48-hour or 72-hour access. With or without the unlimited public transport option. Best way to compare the options is to look at the ordering banner. The card is activated when you use the first free entry and time counts from then.
