Low emission zone from 2017

Low emission zone from 2017

Soot and fine particles pollute the air and are detrimental to the environment and public health. A large part of this pollution is obviously emitted by cars, which is why the City of Antwerp has decided to exclude the most polluting vehicles from the city as of 1 February 2017. The city centre will become a low emission zone (LEZ). It is the road to a healthier, cleaner future.

Antwerp is a pocket-sized city. Many of the attractions are within walking or biking distance of each other. Another way of getting around the city is on the trams and buses of De Lijn. Tip: buy your tram or bus ticket in a point of pre-sale (newsagent’s, supermarket, the vending machines at the various stops or in the visitor centres of Visit Antwerp), where tickets are cheaper.
