From the first of July, the names of twelve Coastal Tram stops will be changed. These stops are located in De Panne, Koksijde, Nieuwpoort, Ostend, Bredene, De Haan and Knokke-Heist. De Lijn will soon start with the name changes at these stops. Furthermore, all map material at the stops and on the website, as well as all communication about the Coastal Tram, will be updated before the summer season.
Twelve Coastal Tram stops will undergo a name change on July 1, 2023. This change is necessary because the existing names are no longer an accurate representation of the current situation and/or nearby environment, or because they appear illogical. This can lead to confusion among travelers. The decision to change the stop names was taken with a view to improving recognisability and increasing passenger comfort.
The new stop names will be visible from the beginning of June at the relevant stops and in all new summer communication about the Coastal Tram. The stop names will of course be adjusted in both directions of travel, according to the Flemish transport company De Lijn.
