The country as a whole has about 200,000 residents and almost 200,000 people from neighbouring countries cross the border each day to work in Luxembourg.
In a bid to do away with its traffic woes and keep up with its promises of social welfare, the Xavier Bettel-led government in Luxembourg has chose to provide free public transport to commuters.
Grand Duchy Prime Minister Xavier Bettel introduced the plan yesterday, December 5, when he took office for his second term, as reported by The Guardian on the same day.
Mr Bettel has also promised to legalise cannabis, introduce two new public holidays and increase investment in public services.
Luxembourg is home to slightly over 500,000 people with an area of 2, 586 square kilometers.

The move is aimed at alleviating traffic congestion and furthering Bettel's campaign vow of being environment-friendly.
The national transport system now costs around €1billion to operate, yet fares only amount to €30million annually, The Independent reports.
The CSV, however, lost seats, while the Greens gained three seats.
