In an effort to help lessen their carbon footprint and ease congestion, Luxembourg is about to become the first country in the world to have free public transportation. Fares on trains, trams, and busses will be zero beginning next summer in a deal reached by the recent reelected, openly gay PM Xavier Bettel. Luxembourg City is notorious for its traffic congestion as a result of nearly 400,000 commuters from neighboring communities and countries flood in for work during the weekday. In a study, drivers spent nearly 33 hours in traffic. There are still some kinks to work out. One is what to do with train cars that have first and second-class cabins, but isn’t that a small problem compared to the major benefits this small country will reap?
