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).


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
  - platform: delijn
    - stop_id: 'STOP_ID'

Configuration Variables

api_key string Required

API Subscription key needed to access De Lijn APIs.

next_departure list Required

One or multiple departure sensors.

stop_id string Required

ID of the stop, e.g., 200552.

number_of_departures integer (Optional, default: 5)

Full configuration

The example below shows a full configuration with two sensors, only the abcdefg needs to be replaced with an actual API subscription key. The first stop_id will return the default next 5 passages, the second stop_id has been forced to return the next 20 passages.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  # De Lijn public transport
  - platform: delijn
    api_key: "abcdefg"
    - stop_id: '200018'
    - stop_id: '201169'
      number_of_departures: 20
