De Lijn


The delijn sensor will give you the departure time of the next bus, tram or subway at a specific stop of the De Lijn public transport network in Flanders (Belgium).

Setup

Create a developer account at De Lijn Open Data portal to get a free API subscription key. For valid stop IDs check for the 6 digits at the physical stops or visit the stops page of the De Lijn website.

To enable this sensor, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
