Bettel’s idea therefore means fare on bus rides trains and trams will completely be scraped off if he lives up to his vision

Around 110,000 people live there but another 400,000 commute in for work every day, while almost 200,000 cross the border from neighbouring France, Belgium and Germany.
With a population of 600,000 inhabitants, Luxembourg also proves to be the workplace of 200,00 people from France, Belgium and Germany who cross the border daily to work. Children and young people under the age of 20 already travel for free and many qualify for an annual mPass, which costs €150.
And secondary school students are provided with free shuttles between their places of study and their home.
