CEO Mark Descheemaecker (68) opens up about De Lijn: “Everyone in politics realized that this was exaggerated”

A malfunctioning app that cost almost 100 million euros, tracks that Flemish trams do not fit on and 2.3 billion ghost passengers who were never transported: vice-chairman of De Lijn Mark Descheemaecker (N-VA) is firmly in favor of the policy of his guardian minister Lydia Peeters (Open Vld). In his new book he unceremoniously throws her under the bus: “She visionlessly saved De Lijn from being destroyed.” What is going wrong according to Descheemaecker?
