Get around in Ghent

The easiest way to get around in Ghent is riding your bike or walking. But the public transport is also very well organized. There are trams and buses. Each ride costs 3.00 euros when you buy it on the spot. For a ticket via text message you pay 1.80 euros but if you buy a 10-ride card a ride will cost you 1.40 euros. You can save up to 20% when you buy your ticket in advance at the presale points of ‘De Lijn’ (‘De Lijn’ shop or newspaper shops) or at a presale ticke machine. The tickets of De Lijn can be used in all the Flemish cities except for some buses in Limburg.
