Support & Contact – De Lijn Coronavirus How is safety maintained on the bus and tram? Published on May 07, 2020 12:12 Because you are important to us... we thoroughly ventilate our buses at regular intervals, for example by opening the roof window. our drivers open the back door of the bus, so you don’t need to touch the button. Do you want to help keep yourself, the other passengers and our drivers safe? Keep your distance. Wear a face mask at the stop, at the Lijnwinkel store, in the premetro and on the bus and tram. This is mandatory if you’re over 12 years old. Buy your ticket in advance. Board the vehicle at the back. Avoid the rush hour. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water. Sneeze or cough into a tissue or your elbow. Stay at home if you’re ill. Any questions about this subject?Fill in this form.
