Since 2020, all forms of public transport, including buses, trains and the brand-new tram, are free throughout the entire country. With a network that constantly adapts to the needs of its passengers and the addition of the tram, this mode of transport is becoming increasingly popular among residents and visitors alike.
All networks are free
Since 29 February 2020, public transportations has been free for everybody, residents as well as tourists. This is the case for trains, trams and buses (RGTR, TICE, AVL). In other words, you don't need to buy a ticket anymore. The only exception are tickets and subscriptions for the 1st class, which still have to be paid for.
However, every passenger has to be able to show a piece of identity if a conductor demands to see one.
From the city to the countryside by bus, train and tram
Luxembourg offers an interconnected network of buses, trains and trams that allows you to access any destination smoothly. Indeed, even though the urban centres, such as Luxembourg City and the agglomerations in the north and south of the country are very well linked, the rural regions also benefit from a guaranteed service, during the week as well as on weekends. Transport connections can easily be looked up via the Mobiliteit.lu app (App Store or Google Play Store) or via the Mobilitéitszentral's website (Mobility Centre).
Luxembourg also benefits from the good cross-border connections, with a direct access to the German, French and Belgian networks. Thus, the German high-speed train ICE, as well as the French TGV meet up in Luxembourg City and allow transit in all comfort. To synchronise your cross-border travels, go to Mobiregio, the Greater Region's platform.
