In addition to that, a new measure has been introduced to allow passenger drop-off at the Vrijdagmarkt (Zand square).
However, coaches are not allowed to collect their passengers from this drop-off point so as to keep discomfort for other road users to a minimum. Indeed, passenger pick-up is a lot more time-consuming than passenger drop-off, coaches always having to wait for the “last” passengers to arrive at the agreed meeting point.
May we please ask you to inform your passengers that the drop-off point is different from the pick-up point? (Download this special tourist map).
Coaches are not allowed in the city centre. An exception is made for coaches dropping off/collecting passengers at/from their hotel. Exceptions to this rule can only be granted by the Bruges Police (Hauwerstraat 3, Tel. +32 50 40 88 44).
The coach park “Bargeplein” has a total capacity of 140 spaces, and facilities include toilets and telephone. There is a regular city bus service to and from the city centre.
The coach park is also a recommended meeting point for guided walking tours (reservations can made at the Tourist Office).
