Luxembourg Ready to visit one of the smallest countries in Europe and in the world

European Union's wealthiest country, Luxembourg, has made history after announcing plans to make public transport free in 2020. On top of that, there's an extremely low far of only €2 (S$3.1) for two hours of travel, which in such a small country covers nearly all journeys.
Children and young people under the age of 20 already ride free on public buses, trams and trains in Luxembourg, thanks to a policy change introduced by Bettel's government earlier this year.
Mr Bettel was sworn in for a second term on Wednesday, having promised to prioritise environmental issues.
In a bid to ease the pressure on the country's road network, all public transport tickets will be abolished from summer 2019. On average, it's estimated that drivers in Luxembourg City spend an average of 33 hours in traffic in 2017.
The free fares plan is the latest step in encouraging citizens to use public transport.
Students in secondary schools also have shuttles which ferry them from home to school and back for free.
