PM declares free ride for all commuters
Luxembourg is to become the first country in the world to make all public transport free.
All fares for trains, trams and buses will be scrapped by next summer as part of a new environmental initiative, Prime Minister Xavier Bettel announced.
Luxembourg City suffers from some of the worst traffic congestion in the world, with one study showing that drivers spent an average of 33 hours in traffic jams. Despite its tiny population of 110,000 people, about 400,000, including those from France, Belgium and Germany commute to the city for work. – Telegraph Group
