the price per km (1,66 € or 2,70 € depending on whether the journey is inside or outside the 19 districts of Brussels);
fixed charge: 2,40 € (4,40 € at night) ;
the waiting time: 30,00 € per hour; certain companies charge reduced fares for journeys to the airport.
Tips and service are included in the price of the journey as shown on the meter, but a small extra tip is always well-received. For all complaints, first of all note the registration number of the taxi, its make and colour.

The Brussels-Brabant waterbus is a boat acting as a bus service between the city centres of Brussels and Vilvoorde, a 10 km navigational route on the Zenne Canal. On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 May till 31 October 2013, this canal shuttle covers this route 6 times a day, with a choice of 8 stops to embark or disembark. The transport by passenger ship is very comfortable! Breakfast on the boat, reading a newspaper, answering e-mails from the office corner, to take a sniff of fresh air on deck… It's all possible! You can even have a meeting in a private room. You can even take your bike on board of the waterbus between Brussels and the Green Belt of Brussels. 


For more than 50 years, the Interparking Group, a leader in the parking sector, has been a recognised expert in the design, development and operation of public car parks for off-street and on-street parking.

Hello!   I have a question about Brussels Card? In this page you said the Brussels Card gives free rides in public transport. But in a booklet about Brussels Card there is nothing about it. So, please, tell me public transport is free with Brussels Card?   Thank's
