Luxembourg public transit to be free

This item appears on page 4 of the March 2019 issue.

Luxembourg will make public transit free throughout the country starting in March 2020. This includes all inter- and intra-city buses and state-run trains, provided the departure and destination cities are both within Luxembourg.

The Luxembourg government is hoping that free public transportation will help relieve traffic congestion in the country, which has one of the higher rates of car ownership in the EU.
