Fast and efficient, the Kusttram (coastal tram; travels the length of the Belgian coast from Knokke-Heist in the east to De Panne in the west, putting all the Belgian resorts within easy striking distance of each other. There are numerous stops and one tram station, in Ostend beside the train station. Services in both directions depart every ten or fifteen minutes in summer, every half-hour in winter. There are multilingual ticket machines at most tram stops and there’s a De Lijn ticket office at Ostend tram station. Tickets can also be bought from the driver, but in this case you pay a premium of around twenty percent. Fares are relatively inexpensive, and you can also buy multiple journey tickets (Lijnkaart) at a discount on the regular price, and tickets for unlimited tram travel.
