The initiative has been introduced to reduce the piling of private vehicles on the roads. Also, opting for public transportation would reduce the contribution of cars in creating pollution. This, the concerned authorities say, will be beneficial for almost 40% of the households and save at least €100 for each of them.

The move was taken after Luxembourg noticed that people in the country do not use public transport as frequently as other countries, like Paris, do. As per a study, people in Luxembourg use buses for only 32 per cent of trips to work, followed by trains, which are opted only for 19 per cent of trips.

All the losses incurred by allowing passengers to board public transportation for free would be incurred by the government. In total, the initiative will scoop out €41m a year from the government’s treasury which is 8 per cent of its budget.
