Pilot project: free public transport between the P+R in Roussy-Le-Village in France and Luxembourg

On 27 January 2022

Roads and motorways in Luxembourg and beyond are becoming increasingly congested, especially at peak times, due to individual traffic, which leads to considerable constraints for workers and the environment. Concrete actions are absolutely necessary to meet the needs of the population and to relieve this congestion.

In this context, on 1 March 2020, François Bausch, Deputy Prime Minister of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Minister for Mobility and Public Works, introduced free travel on all public transport in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in order to motivate the population to make greater use of public transport. While the free travel is limited to the national territory, cross-border workers also benefit from the measure thanks to a reduction in the fares of cross-border tickets and season tickets since 1 March 2020.

In addition, the Ministry of Mobility and Public Works, in collaboration with the Communauté de Communes de Cattenom et Environs (CCCE) and its President, Michel Paquet, have developed a pilot project allowing border workers to travel free of charge between the P+R car park in Roussy-le-Village, which is located 5 km from the Franco-Luxembourg border, and Luxembourg.

The pilot project of this extension of free public transport in Luxembourg to the neighbouring P+R of Roussy-le-Village will start on 31 January 2022 and is planned to last 6 months in order to evaluate the usefulness and the real consequences of this measure on the use of public transport and in particular of the bus line 323 of the RGTR bus network:
