Dutch speaking chamber on March 22, 2019

In 2005, De Lijn decided to install a new registration, ticketing and on-board computer system (ReTiBo) on its buses and trams to replace the magnetic card system. It estimated the cost price in 2009 at around 120 million euros. Only in 2011 did it come to a contract with the temporary association ProFa. The project is expected to be ready in November 2014. However, many delays occurred, as a result of which the project was still not delivered by the end of 2018. In the meantime, the Court of Audit calculated that the cost price increased by at least 41.9 million euros, including around 3 million euros of undue payments.
