Luxembourg becomes the first country in the world to free travel facilities|In the first 61 days of the new year by the government, the transport was freed, after which Luxembourg became the first country in the world to take this step for the benefit of its people.
According to the government statement, only first-class passengers on the train will have to buy tickets, the movie will also bring tourists here.
According to the Ministry of Transport, the purpose of free travel on buses and trains is to force people to leave cars and provide free travel. 61 percent of people in the country still use private rides. The government wants to reduce that number to 46 percent by 2025. Luxembourg has a population of only six million and 14 thousand, while it is considered one of the richest countries in the world. Most people in the country travel to neighboring countries such as France, Germany, and Belgium for employment.
Foreign media reports say the decision was taken by the government to reduce the number of vehicles in personal use, but critics see the move as merely a ‘PR stunt. The project costs around 40 million euros, but ‘free’ does not mean that no one is paying the ticket money. The project official said that freeing up the transport meant it would have to pay the taxpayers. He made it clear that no employee in the Department of Transport will be dismissed from the job, they just have to work a little less.
