Thursday 20 up to and including Saturday 22 April 2017 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
REVA is easily accessible by public transport.
For train travel, the regular schedules and prices apply. NMBS, the Belgian railway operator, kindly asks wheelchair users to contact the departure station 24 hours before departure and to head to the station 15 minutes before the train departs.
From the Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station take tram no. 1 to Flanders Expo. Public transport company De Lijn will be deploying low-floor trams on line no. 1 and will be providing assistance both at the Gent-Sint-Pieters and the Flanders Expo tram stops. The low-floor trams are equipped with one tie-down space for wheelchair users and several non-secured spaces. During the three-day event, trams on line no. 1 will leave for Flanders Expo every 7.5 minutes from platform no. 1 at the Gent-Sint-Pieters tram terminal.
Unfortunately, mobility scooters cannot be taken on board trams and buses because they cannot be safely secured. However, Mobar will rely on the services of Hendriks to take mobility scooters to and from the event venue. Persons using a mobility scooter are asked to head to the De Lijn desk, so that the staff can contact Hendriks to arrange transport.
All De Lijn travel passes (Omnipas and Buzzy Pazz) will be valid on all De Lijn trams and buses during the event, meaning you will not be required to pay extra to travel to Flanders Expo by public transport.
If wheelchair users exceed a certain number, De Lijn will provide a (free) bus shuttle service to and from the event venue in collaboration with Mobar/Hendriks.
You can also contact Mobar/Hendriks directly to arrange transport between the Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station and Flanders Expo, for example if you want to make sure your transport is waiting for you, or if you are planning to visit the event with a large group of wheelchair users. In this case, we kindly ask you to contact Hendriks by telephone at (+32) (0)9 216 80 20. This transport arrangement costs € 1.5 per person.
