Picking up and dropping off people - Kiss-and-Ride zones

There are two Kiss-and-Ride zones where patients can be picked up and dropped off. Move your car immediately after the patient gets out.

Kapucijnenvoer 33

  • 90 m from the hospital entrance

  • When leaving the car park, make a right turn and do not drive straight on to Brusselsestraat. Any vehicle entering Brusselssestraat from Kapucijnenvoer will be registered and fined by an ANPR camera of the city of Leuven.

Kapucijnenvoer 7

  • Accessible to less mobile persons only

  • Just before the hospital entrance

  • When registering at the hospital, provide a desk clerk with the vehicle number plate. Otherwise, the city of Leuven will send a fine to the driver because of the ANPR camera set up at the entrance. Only in the case of less mobile persons will the fine be undone.

Need help with transport?

If you, as a patient, do not have transport to and from the hospital, you can call on a patient transport service.

To do so, contact your health insurance fund.
