Introduction of free public transport in Luxembourg

From 1 March 2020, public transport will be free in Luxembourg.

Users are advised that, due to the introduction of free public transport on 1 March 2020, annual passes purchased on or after 1 March 2019 will not cover the entire 1-year period.

Children and young people

Children and young people under 20 ride free of charge, and do not need a ticket.

In the interest of simplifying administration, anyone under the age of 20, whether or not they are in school or vocational training, may use all national public transport without a myCard or ticket. A document showing that they are under 20 is all that is required for bus, tram and train journeys.

Children under 4 must be accompanied by someone aged 12 or over.

For all group travel involving more than 6 children as part of a school, pre-school or extracurricular activity, special authorisation must be requested from the bus operator. Acceptance of this request will be dependent on the technical resources of the public transport operator.

People on low income

A free travel card (carte de libre parcours) is issued:

  • to people who receive benefits from the social welfare office of the municipal administration in their place of residence;
  • to people who receive guaranteed minimum income supplements under the amended law of 26 July 1986 (loi modifiée du 26 juillet 1986);
  • to dependent family members who live with the person receiving the benefit or supplement;

The certificates needed to obtain free travel cards are issued either by the social welfare office of the municipal administration in their place of residence or by the Luxembourg Reception and Integration Agency (Office luxembourgeois de l’acceueil et de l’intégration – OLAI).

Free travel cards are valid:

  • for unlimited travel throughout the year;
  • on all public transport;
  • if it has an authenticating stamp indicating the calendar year for which it is valid;
  • in combination with an official identity document.

Important!

Free travel cards are strictly personal and non-transferable. They cannot be replaced if lost or stolen during their period of validity.

Cards can only be obtained from the ticket offices of the public transport operators.

People with special needs

Free travel is granted:

  • to holders of disability cards (category A, B or C) issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs (Ministre de l'Intérieur),
  • to persons accompanying holders of a category C disability card.

Disability cards issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs are valid for travel:

  • on all public transport;
  • for unlimited travel throughout their period of validity;
  • in combination with an official identity document.
