  32. alameyo should I be added to the list? I never had access to this wiki
  33. intosi alameyo: I could add you if you like.
  34. intosi Assuming you mean to the list of summit participants :)
  35. alameyo yes
  36. alameyo Paweł Ścibiorski
  37. alameyo 1 - 5 feb
  38. intosi I seem to have lost my abilities to add users, but I've added you to the summit participant list.
  39. alameyo ok thanks
  40. SouL Guus, ok thank you. I will send it as soon as I can today. I apologise if it is too late, sorry.

  43. Guus I'm trying to remember what route we took from Cisco to the hotel last year
  44. Guus we took the train from Diegem, to... Brussel-Schuman?
  45. Guus we didn't have any stopovers, iirc
  46. Guus ah, yes. There's a direct train between the two
  47. intosi Guus: yes, that would work.
  48. intosi The alternative is via either Centraal or Noord. You want to avoid the latter :)
  49. intosi Also: good busy!
  50. Kev I *think* I've always gone via Centraal.
  51. Guus the direct line seems to run once an hour
  52. Guus How did that payment system work again? I seem to recall that there were some kind of tickets that allowed you free travel within Brussels for a day. Did that include that train?
  53. Kev There were multi-hop things for the metro and the tram, I don't believe they covered trains.
  54. Guus ah, maybe those where the ones that I vaguely recall. Thanks
  55. intosi I think that the Jump day passes cover NMBS travel within the Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest.
  56. intosi http://www.stib-mivb.be/article.html?l=en&_guid=d0707200-2683-3410-479e-b21a51d668f0
  57. intosi But you'll need to buy a MOBIB card for that.
  58. intosi You might need such a card anyway these days.
  59. sezuan has left
  60. Kev I haven't got a day pass for years, I think,I've just bought the 10-jump cards when I arrive.
  61. alameyo is changing lines like new journey or i.e. once you enter metro, you can change lines as you wish within single journey?
  62. Kev I believe you can switch, but I only do this once a year, so my memory may be off.
  63. ralphm has left
  64. intosi Ah, Diegem is *just* outside of the Capital Region. Of course it is.

  105. Guus For those that want to attend the Summit, and have not yet send me their email address: _please do so now_. It's needed to generate a wifi code, as well as building access.

  130. SouL intosi, thank you for the link. I'm checking that.
  131. SouL Does someone come from the airport? BRU
  132. SouL I've never been there so any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.
  133. ralphm has joined
  134. SouL I'm trying to find out how to get from the airport to the hotel and such, how mobility works there...
  135. SouL When I arrived to Copenhagen, the difference was a blast for me
  136. SouL Compared to what I was used
  137. Zash The times I went I usually got myself to the bus terminal and went from there
  138. SamWhited has joined
  139. SouL Zash, thanks, is it near the airport?
  140. Zash It's basically one of the exits
  141. Zash https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/15242087
  142. Zash I suppose there's the train as well, but I don't remember if I ever figured out how to buy a ticket for that
  143. SouL Zash, oh cool! Thank you very much. Did you buy any of these tickets listed here? http://www.stib-mivb.be/article.html?l=en&_guid=d0707200-2683-3410-479e-b21a51d668f0 Or if you were able to buy them right there at the airport.
  144. Guus Soul: the airport and the cisco offices are pretty close-by. A taxi (or Uber, don't know if Brussels has those?) is probably cheap enough
  145. SouL If I ask too much just say it haha
  146. Guus as for going back/forth between Cisco and the Hotel, you should look at trains from Diegem to Brussels-Schuman
  147. Zash I've always wondered if it's possible to just take a walk from the airport to cisco diegem
  148. Zash being so close, but that highway between is pretty big
  149. Guus Zash, I don't know, but I think it's crossing a highway, which might require a significant detour.
  150. Guus Google maps suggests 5km / 55 minutes walking.
  151. Zash SouL: IIRC, it's roughly up to get to the bus terminal and down to get to the train station.
  152. Zash Huge maze of an airport tho
  153. SouL Thank you guys! So I guess on Wednesday I should go from the airport to Brussels-Schuman and for what I see, the hotel is just close to that, walking straight
  154. SamWhited I really love the big light rail train up to Diegem; I'm looking forward to taking that again.
  155. Holger > Or if you were able to buy them right there at the airport. SouL: Yes there's a ticket machine.
  156. Holger SouL: I bought one of those "JUMP 24h, 48h, 72h + BUS Airport" in the past.
  157. Holger SouL: There's cheaper tickets for travelling all of Brussels *except* the airport area. IIRC you don't get those at the airport automat.
  158. Holger E.g. the 24h ticket at the airport is 7.50, the regular Brussels-only one is 4.50 EUR.
  159. Holger Oh: > To purchase this ticket, you need to be in possession of a personal MOBIB or MOBIB Basic. This cards cost 5 EUR [...]. Sigh, I think this was different last year. They sold cheaper tickets if you had that card, but I payed 7.50/day without a card.
  160. SamWhited I think 7.50 was about what I paid at Brussels Central last year for a 24 hour ticket; I can't remember if you could use that one to get back to the airport though, I don't think you could.
  161. SamWhited But you could get that at the station too, not just at the airport.
  162. Guus The airport is a distinctly different zone from the rest of Brussels public transportation zone
  163. alameyo "If you wish to buy a personal MOBIB card, you will need your electronic identity card (eID) and €5. If you don’t have an eID or if you would like a more recent picture than the one on your eID, please bring an identity picture."
  164. Guus Last year I took a train to Brussels, got off early (at the airport), and actually had to pay _extra_ (for travelling less distance)
  165. alameyo so to buy this card I have to bring my picture lol
  166. alameyo ?
  167. Guus alameyo: don't bring yourself, bring a picture!
  168. Guus if only people would invent like mobile devices that can be used to record a static image of someones face...
  169. Guus but, I'm off for today. good night!
  170. alameyo sure, but it explicitly states "bring an identity picture"
  171. Holger I'll probably fail to get a ticket and just spend my days at the airport.
  172. marc.laporte has left
  173. alameyo yep, better I'll take a tent or smth in case of stucking at the airport

  179. alameyo good movie :D
  180. Holger > MOBIB is a plastic chip-card which has to be validated at metro stations or on buses/trams by holding it against the white circle on the red machines; JUMP is a paper/card ticket that has to be stamped in orange machines https://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g188644-s303/Brussels:Belgium:Public.Transportation.html
  181. Holger This sounds like I need *no* plastic card for JUMP tickets, no? That's how I remembered things to work.
  182. alameyo oh I figured out that there is version "basic" of this plastic card which doesn't require picture
