Getting around Luxembourg

Are you an expat in Luxembourg or about to move abroad? When you arrive in Luxembourg, you'll be seduced by the quality of its transport. Want to know more about Luxembourg's transport system and how to get around? We'll tell you all about transport in these pages.

Luxembourg is a pioneer in the field of transport and sustainable mobility. Despite its small size, only 2,586 km2, Luxembourg sets an example for its ambitious and innovative approach to transport.

Luxembourg's ambitious approach to transport

Luxembourg will have a population of 661,000 in 2023, growing steadily thanks to the many expatriates attracted by its prosperous economy.

What's more, every day, the country welcomes some 230,000 cross-border workers. Coming from the Greater Region, by car or public transport, they come to work in Luxembourg's major economic centers: the capital Luxembourg, its outskirts and the major conurbations.

Transport is a key issue for Luxembourg. If Luxembourg is to continue to develop its economy, it needs to manage the mobility of its new arrivals and residents as effectively as possible. Thanks to its progressive policies, strategic investments and commitment to reducing traffic congestion and CO2 emissions, Luxembourg is creating an efficient, accessible and environmentally-friendly transport system.

However, depending on your location, you may need to invest in a new vehicle.

Free public transport in Luxembourg

The Grand Duchy is a forerunner when it comes to public transport. In March 2020, it became the first country in the world to introduce free public transport on its national territory.

By introducing totally free public transport, notably buses and streetcars , Luxembourg has made public transport accessible to everyone, regardless of income level. This bold and totally innovative measure has had a worldwide echo.

In this way, the Grand Duchy encourages its residents and daily visitors to become less car-dependent. As a result, traffic jams are reduced and the use of more environmentally-friendly modes of transport increases.

This multimodal revolution, much appreciated by users, clearly encourages eco-responsible travel. Nevertheless, the measure is costing the Luxembourg government 41 million euros a year, due to the lack of revenue from bus and train tickets.

Less and less polluting transport

Luxembourg is committed to the development of less polluting transport. Electric buses are gradually replacing combustion-powered ones. Bicycle lanes and other cycle paths are being introduced everywhere, doubling the number of roads and railways. Purchasers of electric vehicles benefit from grants of up to 8,000 euros.

Furthermore, to combat traffic jams and facilitate travel, the government is investing heavily in roads. Redeveloping problematic traffic circles, bypassing towns, doubling lanes... everything is being done to improve traffic flow on the roads. Access roads are in excellent condition throughout the country.

Integrated mobility for Luxembourg transport

Luxembourg is committed to implementing an integrated mobility system for different modes of transport. A seamless, connected network enables efficient, convenient travel by bus, train, streetcar and bicycle.

Connections with free "Park&Ride " parking lots enable commuters to leave their private cars behind and use public transport instead. Pilot projects for free shuttles from P+Rs on the borders of neighboring countries facilitate the daily commute for cross-border commuters.

Furthermore, Luxembourg's transport system is well organized and the public transport network is very well developed. Buses and trains run on time.

Luxembourg's small size is a real advantage. Numerous train and bus lines serve not only the capital Luxembourg, but also the whole country and even beyond its borders.

Infrastructure and extensive cycling network

Luxembourg invests heavily in cycling infrastructure, recognizing the importance of cycling as a sustainable and healthy mode of transport.

A vast network of dedicated cycle paths crosses urban centers, residential areas and country roads. Well-maintained and safe, these cycle paths encourage cyclists to choose cycling as their primary or secondary mode of transport, complementing public transport.

In addition, a growing number of localities are offering bike-sharing schemes and installing secure bike parking facilities near railway stations.

Urban planning for greener transport

Luxembourg also encourages people to get around on foot. Cities are designed to be pedestrian-friendly, with well-connected sidewalks and safe crosswalks. Communes favor "Fussbus" or "Bus à pied" initiatives to take young residents to their schools from various assembly points close to school structures.

Cars are gradually giving way to pedestrians and sustainable transport in cities. Nevertheless, if you drive in Luxembourg, here are the administrative formalities for your vehicle and the driving rules you'll need to comply with.

In addition, green spaces, parks and leisure areas are increasingly integrated into large-scale real estate projects , creating a pleasant environment for walking, cycling and leisure activities close to economic and residential areas.

By giving priority to people rather than cars, Luxembourg has created lively, pleasant communities that encourage social interaction and improve quality of life.

Innovative transport in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is committed to innovation, including in the field of transport. The country continues to explore the potential of autonomous vehicles, electric mobility and intelligent transport systems. By embracing emerging technologies, Luxembourg aims to further improve the efficiency, safety and sustainability of its transport network.
