Starting today, KBC* customers can use KBC Mobile to buy and pay a digital ticket for the bus or tram directly from De Lijn and also log in to their online banking using itsme®.

·       From now on, customers can use the KBC Mobile app to buy digital tickets for bus or tram journeys from De Lijn and pay for them straightaway.

Digital ticket for De Lijn using KBC* Mobile

Customers daily use the KBC Mobile app for their banking (for instance, to check their account balance or to buy and manage their banking products) and for the other services offered, such as to park with 4411 or to check their Monizze balance. Today, they can also use it just as easily to buy digital tickets for bus or tram journeys from De Lijn and pay for them straightaway from their current accounts. People who do not frequently use De Lijn can travel on its trams and buses for a 60-minute period using a so-called 'M-ticket'. This type of ticket is also valid on the coastal tram service. Costing 1.80 euros, the M-ticket is today's low-cost alternative for those who occasionally use De Lijn services.

KBC Mobile users don't even need to install an additional app on their smartphone or create a new account with De Lijn. All they have to do is enter their mobile phone number, select De Lijn in the KBC Mobile app and then the account to be debited when making payment. As soon as that choice has been made, the 60 minutes' travel time starts. If there is a ticket inspection, the active session(s) can be seen in the app's start screen and the digital ticket displayed.
