This decision was not taken yet, no country in the world.
The Luxembourg government decided to abolish the tolls on any public transport. It is assumed that the cost for buses, trams and trains will be canceled from next summer. Authorities believe that so they can improve the environment and reduce the number of traffic jams in the capital of the Duchy.
According to the newspaper, the country faces a problem of serious traffic jams, including for residents of France, Germany and Belgium who arrive daily in the Duchy to work (about 200 thousand). In the Luxembourg live more than 600 thousand people, of which about 400 thousand come to the capital to work. In the capital live about 110 thousand.
During the election campaign, Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel has promised to pay special attention to environmental issues.
