How to reach the institute of mathematics by bus
from the center of town :
Official web-site for the bus : www.infotec.be
The easiest way to reach the institute is to take line number 48
The first stop of the line is near the opera-house
The next stops in the center are

(and not going back to the center of Liège). The full
list of the bus stops is given here :
A new bus starts every 6 to 9 minutes. The journey from the

travelling card for 8 one-way travels for 5,60 euros (these are
available in a "aubette" which is a small construction near the main
bus stops. Usually it is not possible to buy such card from the
Inside the university campus, the names of the
different stops are in chronological order :
- Croix de Fer
The stop "Ateliers
" is the closest from the Institute of
Mathematics. Generally, the names of the stops are indicated inside
the bus and also on the bus stops. Be careful not missing this
stop. Just before the bus stop, you will find the "grande traverse"
street. The institute is at the end and on the right of this "street".
If you take a look at the campus map : the bus comes from the
center, takes the "Route du Condroz", goes through a large roundabout. The
