Luxembourg set to make all public transport free

Shortly before the New Year, the Government of Luxembourg announced their plans to abolish all fares on public transport.

The plan to abolish all fares on public transport is expected to come into force in summer of this year, with part of the cost being covered by removing a tax break for commuters.

The move will save on costs associated with the collection and processing of fares, and it is also hoped it will encourage a shift away from private cars and ease traffic congestion, which is especially high in the capital, Luxembourg City.
