The bus transportation service of the PA

The Parents Association organises bus transport from and to the Antwerp and Einhoven regions in order to assist pupils, living further away from the school, in their daily commute between their home and the European School in Mol.

Since the European School itself is not involved and there are no transport subsidies available from other benefactors, these activities must be organized and run on a full cost-recovery basis. Our goal is to offer the seats on the buses at the lowest possible fee.

The tentative bus fee for the school year 2017/18 will be €1600,00 per student .

The actual fee, which will not be higher, will be announced once the registration campaign is finished. Standard payment terms are three instalments of 50, 30 and 20% at the beginning of each trimester (other terms can be agreed upon after inquiry). The third instalment can and will be adjusted up or down to meet actual costs. In recognition of the financial burden of having siblings travelling to and from school, the following reduced fees will apply in the case of siblings (second, third, fourth does not relate to age of the siblings but to the fact that more than one is registered):

2ndChild  75% - 1200,00
3
rdChild  50% - 800,00 
4
thand subsequent children - free travel

In cases where previous payments were overdue we reserve the right to only accept registrations after full payment of the yearly fee. Account information can be found here.

In cases, where the bus is near full capacity, children who currently use the bus will be given 1st preference for the new school year.  This will also apply to their sibling who will join in the new school year.  Obviously, our goal is to accommodate all bus requests.

The Parents Association is engaged in this activity on your behalf on a volunteer basis and exercises its capacities in good faith with reasonable care and attention (consistent with the Belgian concept of “goede huisvader”). All who avail themselves of this service acknowledge and accept that travelling on these privately contracted buses remains a “PRIVILEGE” not “AN ACQUIRED RIGHT” even when bus fees have been paid.

Public Transportation to and from the ES Mol:

Vlaanderen’s public bus company “de Lijn” provides bus service from the Mol Train Station (essentially downtown Mol) to the European School Mol in the Europawijk.

As well, “de Lijn” has several public transportation buses running from surrounding communities to and from the Mol Train Station: Arendonk, Beringen, Diest, Geel, Hamont, Leopoldsburg, Lommel, Retie, Tessenderlo, Turnhout, Zilvermeer, and Witgoor. However, their trajectories and schedules are subject to changes.
More travel information can be found on "MijnLijn Reisinfo".
