What’s missing from this picture? Gridlock. Luxembourg will become the first country in the world to make all public transportation free. Verified by Bloomberg, the newly reelected government has promised to lift fares on public trains, trams and buses by summer 2019. Currently, Luxembourg, with a population of 593,180, receives 170,000 cross-border commuters on a daily basis from neighboring France, Belgium and Germany. The government, led by Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, 45, who first became PM in 2013, is comprised of the centrist Democratic party, the left-wing Socialist Workers’ Party and the Greens.
