Hello, I will be staying in Bruges for a little while and then will need to go to Vlissingen for a conference next month. I will not have a car. How can I go from one to the other. Is it easy to get to the ferry in Breskens from Bruges without a car?
In the summer there's a direct bus: Veolia #14 to the Breskens ferry.
Outside the summer you need to take 3 busses:
From Brugge: De Lijn Oost-Vlaanderen #58 (Brugge - Maldegem)
From Maldegem: Veolia #12 (Maldegem - Oostburg)
From Oostburg: Veolia #3 (Oostburg-Breskens)
Thank you, I will be going there on September 14th. Does that still qualify as summer?
From Brugge, you can take bus number 42. It goes from Brugge to Breskens. The bus goes every hour from 6:59 am. You may want to get one of the bus schedules from Brugge station to keep you update.
Just one last remark: The bus service from Brugge to Vlissingen is operated jointly by "De Lijn" and "Veolia". The busses leave every hour, but only the runs done by "De Lijn" carry the number 42, the Veolia runs have number 2. However they will all have "Breskens" on their destination board. Stay on the bus till the stop "Veerhaven", where it's just a few steps to the ferry.
The "De lijn bus" is indicated with the letter A at the timetable of:
