As of March 1, 2020 all public transport — trains, trams and buses — in the country is now free.

Although free public transport stops at the border, cross-border commuters will also benefit from lower fares, while first-class travel continues to be chargeable.

Taking up 2,586 square kilometers, Luxembourg is roughly the size of Rhode Island. From the capital of Luxembourg City, Belgium, France, and Germany can all be reached by car in half an hour.
High housing costs, especially in Luxembourg City, mean more than 180,000 of its workforce commutes from those neighboring countries every day.

This makes Luxembourg perfect for cycling and trekking.
