Charleroi airport to bus station

We arrive at airport 1620 3 Sept and have to be at Brussels Bus Station for 1930. Do the shuttles run to the bus station and is it best to book online? Appreciate any help given

Many thanks in advance

What do you mean by "Brussels bus station"? If you are taking a Eurolines bus, these depart from next to Gare du NORD (North Station), and the Brussels City Shuttle from CRL brings you to rue de France next to Gare du MIDI (South Station), as it tells you on its website: http://www.brussels-city-shuttle.com/en - where you can also see that while you don't have to book online in advance, it is cheaper if you do (€17 on the spot, maximum €14 online).

Between Midi and Nord, you can take the metro - 6 stops on lines 3/4 - which costs €2.10 per person. Or, instead of the Brussels City Shuttle, you could take TEC bus A to Charleroi-Sud station and continue by train to Brussels, which will stop at Bruxelles-Midi, -Central and -Nord.

However, other international buses are run by Megabus (to London, Paris, Amsterdam), from rue Cardinal Mercier near Gare centrale, and ID-Bus (to Paris and Lille), from rue de France next to Gare du Midi. So I suggest you look at what it says on your booking as to exactly where your bus departs from in Brussels, and if this isn't clear, look at the company's website or ask them directly.

Some Eurolines buses do stop or drop off at Gare du Midi - in Avenue Fonsny, on the opposite side of the station from rue de France where the CRL shuttle stops - but as it is only possible to select "Brussel-Noord" (= Gare du Nord) as a possible departure point in the "from" box on their website, I would guess that this is only for buses arriving in Brussels - and only from the South at that, as it definitely doesn't apply for buses to/from Amsterdam (eurolines.be/en/…).
