De Lijn operates Antwerp's city bus service; it's an easy system to use. Most lines begin outside Centraal Station on the Koningin Astridplein. All stops are clearly marked with a yellow pole. Single-ride tickets cost €2 when bought on the bus, or €1.20 bought in advance at metro stations. Other options include a day pass (€7 on board, €5 bought in advance), which are good on all forms of public transportation. These are available at De Lijn offices, the tourist office, and at some metro stops. Ask for a transit route map at the tourist office or metro stations. Buses run frequently, roughly from 6 am to midnight.
