Who is still allowed to drive around town?
Car Free Sunday applies to everyone, except for public transport, taxis, buses, emergency and security forces, provided with a legitimation, as well as for the diplomatic corps. The maximum speed is limited up to 30km/h everywhere.
When is the Region 'closed'?
Between 9.30am and 7pm. The closing and the re-opening of the entrances to the Region and the tunnels will happen gradually. Therefore, there might be some traffic nuisance outside these times. As a result of the activities and celebrations, the streets in certain neighbourhoods might also be closed longer. So it is no use hurrying to the entrances to Brussels; this to avoid congestion and safety problems.
What about public transport?
The STIB and The Lijn willen provide free public transport! The service level will be reviewed with a considerable reinforcement on most of metro, tram and bus lines.
Rent a bike?
Want to take advantage of the lack of cars on 16 September, or try getting around Brussels by bike during Mobility Week? Then hire a bike from Pro Velo.
- During Mobility Week you can hire bikes via www.provelo.org. You’ll need to book in advance and pay when you pick up your bike.
- On Car-Free Sunday, Pro Velo will be at the Bike Brussels fair at Tour & Taxis. You can hire bikes for the day from 10am to 6pm. First come, first served.
How do you get to Brussels ?
Use public transport as close to your home as possible. The SNCB will take you to the heart of the city. On 16 September, everyone can travel as much as they want on the SNCB network for just €5. This one-day unlimited travel ticket is called the Mobility Pass.
By car you can drive to parking C of Heysel, where 11.000 places are available (5€ for the whole day). You can easily change in one of the nearby metro stations. Other transit parking allotments along the edges of the Region are well indicated from the Ring. Please be careful: the number of places is limited.
Even on Car Free Sunday, some cars are permitted to drive
An accident can happen very quickly. There is only one rule to respect in order to prevent disasters: comply with traffic regulations. In any case do not use the tunnels! While on your bike please take into account the traffic lights, traffic direction and priority rules! Mind your children, the place for pedestrians is the pavement!
