From next summer every resident under 25 and over 65 will not pay for using public transport in Brussels, the Stib has announced.
The measure has received the approval of the Brussels government and is expected to cost about €12 million a year.
Young people aged 12-24 currently pay a reduced rate of €50 for a Stib annual season ticket, provided they are in education for at least 20 hours a week. From July 2020, under-25s will travel free whether they are studying or not.
Passengers over 65 currently pay €60 per year – although free travel is already available to some older travellers on means-tested benefits.
