All your connections in one place!
You can access STIB-MIVB real time either via “Lines” or via “Stops”. You can save your stop or journey as a favourite by clicking on the heart in the top right-hand corner after your first search. Your favourites are then directly displayed on your next search.

You can activate or deactivate the proposed modes of transport (metro, tram, bus, train) and operators (STIB-MIVB, De Lijn, TEC, SNCB-NMBS) in the options. You can also configure your preferences: fastest itinerary, with the fewest connections or with the shortest walking distance.
Do you need ground-level access or access with lifts for your station journeys? Check accessibility in real time, by line and by direction via "Lines" or "Stops".
Getting on or off at a bus or tram stop? Wheelchair access is indicated at each bus stop. For trams, this is still only the case on lines 7 and 9.

Can I use the "MyBOOTIK" account I created on the website stib.be to connect to the mobile app?
Yes, you can connect to the mobile app using the same email address and password as on our website stib.be. All information already available on your MyBOOTIK account will then be readily available in the app.
How do I manage my MOBIB card(s)?
Go to the "My MOBIB" section and add a personal or Basic MOBIB card.
This will allow you to look up your personal data linked to your card, edit them and also receive a notification when your season ticket is about to expire.
You can also buy your tickets directly from the app.
I am trying to add my MOBIB card to my account, but I am getting an error message saying that my card is already linked to an account. What should I do?
You card has probably already been linked to an account on our website. There are two possibilities:
- You can log into your STIB-MIVB app using your existing web account (MyBOOTIK/stib.be).
- You can remove the MOBIB card you wish to add to your mobile app account from your MyBOOTIK account. In order to do so, go to stib.be, log in with the account your card is linked to and remove the card from the account.
In case you do not remember the account your MOBIB card is linked to, you can request the connection to be undone on our website stib.be. In order to do so, go to stib.be, log in with you mobile app account and try adding your MOBIB card to this account. The website will offer you to send a notification to the account your card is linked to, in order to undo the connection. Once this is done, you can add your MOBIB card on the mobile app.
