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

The City of Brussels and the Region of Brussels Capital set up a workgroup which met on several occasions in 2007 and 2008 to identify parking zones, clarify their duration, the number of places.

July 10th, 2008, the College of the City of Brussels made an agreement on 10 potential locations. These were presented to the representatives of tourist buses.
