Parking lot for coaches in Brussels

The coaches or tourist buses are also heavy traffic in the city centre.

Lots of coaches (autocars) park around tourist poles like the Grand-Place, the European district, the Heysel,... This raises a real problem for the available space and the relations with the neighborhood.

The regional plan of development (PRD) plans parking lots for short and long parking, with places that are reserved for the buses.

Parking zones

There are 3 types of parking zones: short, medium and long term.

  • short stop: up to 30 minutes
  • medium stop: up to 5 hours
  • long stop: more than 5 hours

In parking zones for short stops, buses may thus park up to 30 minutes. In these places tourists can quickly be dropped off and/or picked up. In the parking zones for medium stops, a bus may park up to 5 hours. These zones allow to park while visiting an event, site or attraction. In parking zones for long stops, buses may park longer than 5 hours. These zones allow to park overnight.
