Luxembourg to be first country to introduce free public transport
European Union's wealthiest country, Luxembourg, has made history after announcing plans to make public transport free in 2020.
The European country's recently re-elected coalition government led by Prime Minister Xavier Bettel has promised to lift fares on trains, trams and buses nationwide by summer 2019, The Guardian reported.
Despite its tiny population of 110,000 people, some 400,000, including those from the bordering countries of France, Belgium and Germany commute to the capital city for work.
Currently, fares are all capped at a low level of €2 for up to two hours of travel, which covers nearly any journey in the small nation - which is about the same size as Oxfordshire. On average, it's estimated that drivers in Luxembourg City spend an average of 33 hours in traffic in 2017.
The policy will save the government money on the collection and policing of ticket purchases.
There is already free transport for under 20s while secondary school students can use free shuttles between schools and their homes.
