Well, there aren't that many cross-border bus lines. 'Safe' way I can find is train: Eindhoven-Roosendaal, Roosendaal-Antwerp, Antwerp-Geel. (And in any case first city bus airport to Eindhoven station).

But probably best to ask in Belgium forum, they're better aware of the Belgian bus lines reaching into the area closer to Eindhoven.

All the best,

The (train) route suggested by ErikdR seems like a big detour. There are cross-border bus lines - maybe that saves you some time and/or money.

First, you will have to take line 401 from Eindhoven Airport to Eindhoven Station.

From Eindhoven Station, take Hermes bus line 172 to Luyksgestel (approx. 1 hour), and change there to Hermes bus line 472 to Lommel Station (Belgium - approx. 18 minutes). From there, you can take the train to Geel (16 minutes).

I assume you can use the Strippenkaart on line 172; on line 472, you will have to buy a ticket from the bus driver. You can buy the train ticket at the train station in Lommel.

Make sure that you plan the trip carefully - and ask the bus driver where you can best change to bus 472.

Line 172: hermes.nl/reisplanner/dienstregeling/lijn…

Line 472: hermes.nl/reisplanner/dienstregeling/lijn…

Belgian train: www.b-rail.be/main/E/

(I hope the links to the Hermes site keep working - their site doesn't seem to work that well, and is very inaccessible.)

It's a shame there connections from Eindhoven to Belgium are so bad. They really should invest in a train connection and a proper highway to Hasselt.

The Belgians already built their part of that highway years ago (N74) but it ends at the dutch border....

There also is a railtrack from Geel to Weert but no trains (perhaps cargo)
