SNCB offers free drinking water in train stations
SNCB has installed water taps in six stations where passengers can fill their bottles with filtered tap water for free. By the end of next year, the railway company will offer this service in about 100 stations, it said in a press release on Friday.
Travellers at Bruges, Brussels-Luxembourg, Ghent-Sint-Pieters, Kortrijk, Ostend and Liège-Guillemins stations have access to free tap water. Other stations, such as Charleroi-Central and Ottignies, will follow in the coming weeks. Eventually, 80 per cent of all passengers will have access to free drinking water, says SNCB.
The company says the initiative is intended to cut plastic waste.
