No, not since March or April 2009. You can either take the shuttle to Brussels and train from there, or local bus (A or 68) to Charleroi-Sud railway station and then train, changing in Brussels for Brugge; for which you can buy a flat-rate fare from machines at CRL, for €19.40.

The "Ryanair" shuttle from CRL to Brussels takes 45-60 mins to Bxl Gare du Midi and the IC train, heading for Oostende or Knokke/Blankenberge, takes 1 hr from Bxl to Brugge; but of course overall journey time is longer because of the connections, waiting time etc. It is about the same time or a bit longer if you take the local bus to Charleroi-Sud railway station and train from there, changing in Bxl. Why don't you just look up the shuttle/train timetable? Links are on CRL airport's website.
