You're waiting for the metro.
But who are the STIB workers who, every day, transport you by metro, tram or bus to your destination?

Thanks to this APP, you will have access to seven stories, which mix fiction and reality, posted in seven stations of the metro network. Stories that are the result of several interviews with different STIB - MIVB workers.

Enjoy this journey.

Memories

Station 0 Photo
Central Station

Sitting on the dock

Sometimes it feels good to stop and watch the metros go by. How long has it been since you've done it?

Botanique

The sounds of fragrances

Even today Thierry refuses to close the door of his cabin when he works, because he likes to feel people's smells. Maybe it's something that belongs to the family gene pool.

Station 2 Photo
Bourse

The Delvaux hardboards

One of my father's close friends was the painter, famous painter Delvaux. He was particularly interested in the railways and he loved stations, wagons, locomotives, trams. Moreover, he gave my father a small pencil sketch depicting a locomotive entering the station. I still have it.

Étangs Noirs

The fire of the writer

It was during these subway trips that she developed a feeling of jealousy that insidiously grew in her. Jealous of passengers reading novels to which she was not the author.

Station 4 Photo
Gare du Midi

At the midday sun

Even if you do not believe in angels, you cannot deny the existence of these men and women. They have a name, a salary and, most importantly, a life story.

Station 5 Photo
Trône

The boxer

It was him, his opponent, the author of his scars, the man against whom he had to fight at the age of 21 to become the Belgian boxing champion.

Station 6 Photo
Schuman

Running in circles

Monotony sets in and we start living inside a vicious circle that obscures our horizons. Everything looks the same, life becomes a frozen carousel: metro, work, sleep.
