The public transport in the city is well organised, with a comprehensive network of trams and buses. From early in the morning until late at night, the buses and trams will take you anywhere in and around Ghent.
A free map with the daytime service in the Centre of Ghent can be asked for at the so-called Lijnwinkels (the shops of transport company ‘De Lijn’), located at the main bus terminals: near Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station, near Korenmarkt and at Gent-Zuid (Ghent South). This map is also available at the information desk in the Tourist Centre.
Buy your ticket in advance at the ‘Lijnwinkels’ or from the vending machine at the bus stop, where it is cheaper than when you buy it from the driver.
The Lijnwinkel Gent-Zuid is open from Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. till 7:00 p.m. That also applies to the one at Gent-Sint-Pieters, except for a lunchbreak from 1:30 till 2:00 p.m.
The Lijnwinkel near the Korenmarkt is open from Monday to Saturday from 10:15 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. On Friday and Saturday De Koninck night buses
