“We will see how the situation evolves,” explained Françoise Ledune, STIB’s spokesperson to L’Echo. “We do this for staff and travellers who would not understand why they are treated differently from De Lijn users”.
The changes will be effective as of Tuesday morning, according to reports. The measurement impacts bus lines 61 and 20. Bus stop 61 will be moved to Place du Nord, at the footbridge, along from the station. The stop on line 20 will be moved to Boulevard Simon Bolivar.
However, the risk of contagion remains minimal at the station, according to Médecins du Monde.
