Context

  • Luxembourg became the first country in the world to introduce free public transport for everyone.
  • It will apply to all trams, trains and buses and—unlike Estonia's capital—will be available to tourists as well as residents.
  • All standard-class journeys on public transport in the tiny and wealthy European country are now free of charge, compared to an annual pass worth 440 euros ($485) before. Travellers can still pay for first class, at a cost of 660 euros a year.
  • Luxembourg is Europe's richest country. There are already cities that have introduced such measures—Tallinn—but Luxembourg is the only to do it for a whole country.
