Waterbus
The 'metropolitan' waterbus is an interregional and comfortable shuttle on the canal. It navigates between Brussels and Vilvoorde and brings you without the hassle of traffic jams or parking problems to your destination.
This canal shuttle reinforces the mobility of pedestrians and cyclists: many places along the Canal become easely accessible, such as new housing projects (Up-site tower,…), shopping centers (Docks, …) and recreation zones (Bruxelles les Bains…).
Simultaneously, the waterbus is an extension of the public transport, its 6 stops connect seamlessly with the existing bus, tram and subway stops.
Several railway stations are at walking distance.
