Luxembourg is set to become the first country in the world to make all of its public transport free of charge.

From next summer, fares on trains, trams and buses will be scrapped under plans by recently re-elected Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, who vowed to make the environment a key part of his campaign.

Fares are currently capped at two euros for two hours of travel, which is a small European nation of just 2,590 square kilometres, covers most journeys. From the start of 2020 all tickets will be abolished, saving on the collection of fares and the policing of ticket purchases.
