Luxembourg makes all public transport free
Luxembourg is to become the first country to offer a free public transport system, as the government tries to reduce particularly dense car traffic, The Guardian reports.
Some cities have taken similar partial measures but the transport ministry said it was the only time such a decision had encompassed an entire country.
Public transport will be free from Saturday in a move that will affect approximately 40% of households and save each one about €100 per year. The measure is part of a wider plan to reduce congestion.
