This country to have free public transport for all

As of this summer, anyone under the age of 20 can travel free in Luxembourg, while an annual "mPass" for commuters.
Around 200,000 others cross the border to Germany, France and Belgium daily.
Soon, all public transport in Luxembourg will be free as fares for trains, trams, and buses are lifted next summer.
The abolition of all fares on trains, trams and buses was a policy proposed by the country's ruling coalition government led by Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, who was sworn in for a second term Wednesday.
Other than their transport promise, Bettel's new coalition government says it is also considering the legalization of cannabis and the introduction of two new public holidays, including "Europe Day" on May 9.
Luxembourg is home to slightly over 500,000 people with an area of 2, 586 square kilometers. Though only 100,000 people live there, an additional 400,000 commute into the city for work.
It's hoped that by 2020, all tickets for public transportation will be abolished, leaving no need for fare collection and policing of ticket purchases and a significant reduction in traffic congestion.
