Free Shopping Shuttle

Every Saturday the Shopping Shuttle provides a quick and comfortable ride to the city centre from a free car park on the outskirts of Mechelen. It also runs on Shopping Sundays. Forget the hassle of looking for a parking space and lugging heavy shopping bags around. Make life easy for yourself and hop on the Shopping Shuttle!
