The tram 1 stop for the city centre is located at the entrance of the Gent-Sint-Pieters station (direction: Korenmarkt/Wondelgem/Evergem). Cards can be bought at the automatic ticket machine situated on the tram platform (coins: € 3.00). Get off at the "Korte Meer" or "Korenmarkt" tram stop. If you are travelling in a group or if you plan to use the tram and/or bus often during your stay in Ghent, it is worth buying a "Lijnkaart" card (€ 16.00 = 10 journeys at € 1.60 = one journey is equivalent to 60 minutes of unlimited transport by bus or tram) at the Lijnwinkel shop situated in Sint-Pieters station.
