The reason for the Diabolo tax (when you take the train), is that extra
rails and tunnels were built to make the airport connection a lot smoother.

The reason for the extra fee on top of STIB/MIVB tickets is that they
operate in Brussels, but the airport is 'out of their normal reach', over
in Flanders. So if you take bus 12 or 21, you have to buy a supplementary
ticket at their vending machines. The JUMP ticket is issued by them and
they made agreements with the other operators so inside the Brussels region
it's possible to use the other means of transport as well. The airport is
not within Brussels region.

The cheapest (€3) way to get from the airport to Brussels is using De Lijn
272, 471, BUT that will take about an hour to get to the wrong side of the
city. The terminus at North Station is not the VUB campus. Their focus is
serving Flanders, and although they do continue into Brussels, it's not the
priority.

https://www.delijn.be/en/routeplanner/resultaten.html?from=Brussels+Airport%2C+Zaventem&startXCoordinaat=158094&startYCoordinaat=176021&to=Station+Delta+%5BB%5D&finishXCoordinaat=152475&finishYCoordinaat=167548&datum=23-09-2016&departureChoice=1&tijd=05%3A55&option-bus=on&option-tram=on&option-metro=on&option-trein=off&option-belbus=off

If you see colours on the line numbers, they are operated by De Lijn. If
the numbers are black, they are operated by STIB/MIVB and your ticket of De
Lijn won't be valid on those.


It's a mess. The route planners do work to give you the best connections,
but tarification is opaque. Even more so for locals who have abonnement for
one of the operators, or who arrive by train, giving them the right to use
the train to continue to any station in Brussels.
