Public Transportation

Antwerp's tram and metro public transit system is extensive and reliable. Some segments operate as the pre-metro system, which is basically a tram running underground for part of its route. The most useful subway line for visitors links Centraal Station (metro: Diamant) with the left bank, which is the other side of the river (Linkeroever), via the Groenplaats (for the cathedral and Grote Markt). A €1.20 (€2 bought on board) ticket is good for one hour on all forms of public transport, including buses; a €5 (€7 bought on board) pass buys unlimited travel for one day. Tickets are available at De Lijn offices, the tourist office, and at the Diamant, Opera–Frankrijklei, and Groenplaats metro stops. The metro system is open 6:30 am–midnight. Stations are marked by large arrows indicating the entrances.
