TranspORT becomes transpART here in Brussels. While most people use the metro system to get to somewhere more interesting, this metro system may be your actual destination. Sixty or so works of art, including many by famous national artists, adorn the platforms and corridors.
To see the art or take the metro, look for one of many blue and white M signs on the street, with the corresponding station names underneath.
It’s open from 05.30 until 0.30 and tickets can be bought either from the stations GO system, or at newsagents, supermarkets, STIB information offices or tourism centres.
Be warned though, tickets must be validated at the machines before riding the metro, or you risk being fined.
