Jan,

This is indeed possible, but someone not used to Brussels will have
issues finding his way for that 15 min walk. This means we also have to
provide a detailed map for that walk.

Compared to the bus from the main train stations that stops right at the
ULB it is more risky.

To keep things stupid, simple we also try to keep the list of possible
ways as short as possible.


Thanks for the input

Christophe
