This year Couleur Café teamed up with TIER, to offer our visitors another great transportation solution. We specifically chose TIER because:
- TIER has always taken care of its employees, offering real contracts, social security, healthcare and shares to all.
- TIER has been climate neutral since January 2020 and goes for a 0 emission policy
- TIER tends to raise the bar for the entire sector, with innovations like foldable helmets and removable batteries
- In Brussels, TIER, works solely with green energy and is transforming the entire fleet to electric vans and bicycles.
In short: they are the most socially and environmentally responsible provider of e-scooters.
Feel like coming to Couleur Café or going back home by scooter? Download the TIER app and enter the code CC2022TIER to enjoy 2 free unlocks and 20 minutes of driving time (value =€5) from 23/06 to 27/06 for new users only.
We strongly advise everyone not to come by car, for ecological and practical reasons; long traffic jams can occur around the festival grounds. For those who have no other choice and wish to come by car, these are the options:
P1: This parking is located on the Atomium Avenue and is only granted to crew and certain VIPs. If you didn’t receive access for this parking, you cannot purchase it either. If you have been granted access, you’ll find all necessary info on your parking voucher.
P2: This parking is located on the Madrid Avenue. Later on, you can obtain a parking spot for this parking via our ticket page. You’ll find all necessary info on your parking voucher.
ATTENTION: your parking voucher is only valid until 8:00 AM of the following day. For example, if you have a parking ticket for Sunday June 27, you must leave the parking before Monday morning June 28, 8AM. We therefore strongly advise people with a Camping ticket not to use this parking. It is also strictly forbidden to spend the night on this parking.
Car parks B, T, M and E are operated by Brussels Expo and are accessible depending on the events. You pay €10 per 24 hours, but we cannot guarantee that there will be a spot left during Couleur Café 2021. More info here.
