By Bus and/or Tram

From Sunday afternoon till Sunday evening, FOSDEM provides free transportation by bus from the conference site (ULB Campus Solbosch) to the Brussels-South railway station which has the best connections to Brussels Airport and neighboring countries.

The FOSDEM bus will pick up people at the main bus stop on the Avenue de l'Université road facing the ULB. You'll find the exact location on this map or simply follow the signs at the venue.

Based on previous years, we expect the bus to be busiest between 17:10 and 18:45. If you don't want to risk having to wait for the next bus, we advise you to leave earlier later. There are plenty of bars in the neighborhood to pass the time.

We hope you enjoy this free service!
