I would like to plan a couple of visits in Belgium to some remote places (not served by train). And I was wondering if there is a public transport planner. I know google maps provides such a service but it depends on operators publishing their schedules. I was wondering if there is such thing, at national scale, like there is in The Netherlands with 9292.nl .

The NMBS/SNCB journey planner knows about local transport, including bus lines. I'm not sure they always have information on service disruption or changes on short notices, so also check with the local bus operator, De Lijn, TEC, or STIB.

  • That is a great tip, but it's good to keep in mind, at least from my trials, that the system always privileges the train even if more convenient bus alternatives exists. – nsn May 9 '16 at 20:03
  • @nsn Even when taking a bus would be faster? Unfortunately I don't know an alternative. – neo May 9 '16 at 20:35
  • that was already a big help. Thanks!! I can't tell for sure, but I have that felling. I simulated a couple of routes, to some village near Hasselt, where there would be direct buses to Hasselt and the system always sent me by train. – nsn May 9 '16 at 20:40
  • @nsn Have you tried choosing "show also connections with longer travel time" in the advanced options? – neo May 9 '16 at 20:45
  • no, that I didn't – nsn May 9 '16 at 20:48
