I will be traveling to Charleroi and than by train to Liege. I am trying to find the schedule for the buses and the ticket prices but I am unable to find them. I tried using the train planning tool, which also gives some bus schedules but for now I don't know if the plane is on time and if this system covers all possible buses.

Where to find the bus schedules for buses from Charleroi airport to Charleroi train station?

Are there alternatives to get to Liege?

This turned out to be harder than I expected. The bus between the airport and the railway station is operated by TEC and you can find the info on their website. Unfortunately the website is only available in French and German and I couldn't find a pdf with the schedule to link to.

So here it goes to find the schedule:

  • On the homepage you have a big box under the title "Horaires et plans de ma ligne" and the phrase "Numéro et/ou nom de la ligne"
  • This box is asking for the name or number of the line that you care about. It happens to be line A, so you just type "A".
  • A lot of choices appear one of which (the third at the moment) is "A CHARLEROI Sud - GOSSELIES Airport".
  • That is the one you need, so you select it and click the big red button "Détails de ma ligne".
  • This gives the times for the next departures. You probably don't care about now, but want some date and time in the future. In red, there is written "Modifier". This means "Modify" and clicking it will allow you to change the date and time. To change the direction of travel, you can click the well-known symbol with arrows to the left and the right. At least something is visually intuitive.

The price for this bus is at the moment 6 euro.

The only real alternative would be taking the shuttle to Brussels and take the train there. It is certainly faster and maybe cheaper.
