Trams on almost all lines in Antwerp depart every 10 minutes during the daytime. Some bus lines also have a high-frequency service.

BY WATERBUS OVER THE SCHELDT
The waterbus connects Hemiksem and Lillo and stops at the Steenplein (where you have to get off).
If you come from the Left bank, you can also take the ferry.
All practical information such as rates and departure times can be found on dewaterbus.be.
Pay attention: remember that the entire city centre of Antwerp and Linkeroever (the Left Bank) are a low emission zone.
Polluting vehicles may no longer enter the low emission zone. Check before coming to Antwerp whether your vehicle complies with the conditions for entry with this test.
Compulsory registration: All vehicles with a foreign number plate (except Dutch number plates) complying with the conditions for entry must be registered once-only. Registration is free and can be done up to 24 hours after entering the zone.
