Public transport free-for-all: the revolution in Luxembourg
Public transport free-for-all from the first of march in Luxembourg. The Grand Duchy is the first Country in the world to adopt a decision of this kind to reduce the pollution due to the circulation of vehicles in the context of the fight against climate change.

The initiative is part of a plan of the government of luxembourg on the mobility in a Country where the car reigns supreme, and traffic jams are frequent because of the heavy traffic of commuters who work in Luxembourg but live in Belgium, France and Germany.

Only the first class rail fare will be paid. The total cost of the maintenance of the public network, about 500 million euros per year, will then be at the total expense of the State.

There are similar experiments elsewhere, but so far only partial measurements. The government, which speaks of the project as "an important social measure", believes that the measure will cover about 40% of households, with an estimated savings of about 100 euro on average per household per year.

The minister for urban mobility, the ecologist Francois Bausch, who dreams of making Luxembourg a "laboratory for mobility in the 21st century". The ticket vending machines will be gradually withdrawn, and in the stations will remain the only points of sale for railway tickets, international, and first class (the only exception to the free-entry).
