In 1982, STIB decided to order its first articulated buses, mainly to cope with high demand on line 71. These were also the first “self service” buses in Brussels: passengers could open the doors themselves, both from inside and outside the vehicle. However, passenger comfort was notably lower than that of their predecessors. This was a deliberate choice to counter vandalism. Nowadays, articulated buses are a very common sight in Brussels.
Today, the museum is open
from 1 to 6.30 pm
Please note that it is not possible to reserve seats on our vehicles running on our historical lines (Tervuren, Cinquantenaire, Stockel and BM) during weekends and holidays.
Birthdays, cocktails, company parties, silver and golden wedding anniversaries: they are all good reasons to rent one of our old trams or buses.
