Line 9 is 4 stops longer
After a first phase in 2018, with the creation of the line between Simonis and Arbre Ballon, tram 9 has gained four new stops. As of 11 December 2021, travellers can enjoy a fast, direct tram connection between Simonis and Roi Baudoin, via the centre of Jette, UZ Brussel, Square du Centenaire and Cité Modèle, in just 20 minutes.
This line has many advantages. It runs entirely in its own dedicated lanes, offering a fast link to many points of interest. In addition to the direct connections with these different locations, this extension also creates new links with other existing lines, for the benefit of the many passengers on these other lines: with metro 6 at Roi Baudoin, as well as with trams 51 and 93 at Stade for example, or with the bus lines of the STIB and De Lijn.
