Public transport in Luxembourg is a quick, clean and free way of getting from A to B. Yes, you read it correctly, it’s “free”! 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.
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. Although Luxembourg’s urban areas – including Luxembourg City, but also the towns in the south and the north of the country – enjoy the best public transport links, the most rural regions also benefit from a guaranteed service both during the week and at the weekend. 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 boasts excellent cross-border connections, with direct access to the Luxembourgish, German, French and Belgian networks. What’s more, the famous German and French high-speed trains (ICEs and TGVs) converge in Luxembourg City, offering smooth transit possibilities. To synchronise your cross-border travels, go to Mobiregio, the Greater Region's platform.
A comprehensive range of services
In addition, you can travel within the municipalities with the City Bus and return safe and sound after one or more beers with the Night Bus or Night Rider that runs on weekends. Several municipalities also offer a bus service that picks you up from your home on request (Ruffbus). Disabled citizens may also use the Adapto service, a door-to-door taxi-bus.
Indeed, Luxembourg places great emphasis on the accessibility of its public transport. Together with a team of experts, the Verkéiersverbond developed a range of tools to make sure that people with sight or hearing impairments have access to timetables and all other information. We also take special care to ensure access to public transport for people with reduced mobility.
Train and bike? Not a problem here in Luxembourg! You can take your bicycle for free in all trains (within the limits of available space). And if you want to ride your bike to the station to catch a train, it’s no problem: thanks to the mBox network you can park your bike safely until you return.
Do you want to go abroad?
Luxembourg is very well integrated into the international rail network. Departures to Trier, Metz and Brussels every hour and to Liège every two hours. A weekend in Paris? The City of Lights is only two hours away on the high-speed train (TGV, in French)!
Free public transport
Since 29 February 2020, public transport has been free for everyone, both residents and tourists. Free of charge applies to trains, trams and buses (RGTR, TICE and AVL). This means that travelers will no longer need a ticket, whether it is a single ticket or a season ticket. The only exception to free travel is for first-class tickets and season tickets on trains. It will continue to be charged at the current fares.
However, all passengers must at all times be able to show personal identification at the driver's request.
