This country to have free public transport for all

European Union's wealthiest country, Luxembourg, has made history after announcing plans to make public transport free in 2020. As the UK's The Independent newspaper noted, fares are capped at about $2.20 for two hours of travel.

It may be small, but its capital-Luxembourg City-is regularly snarled up by some of the worst traffic in the world.

However, not everyone is convinced about the historic change.

Mr Bettel's Democratic party is to form a government with the left-wing Socialist Workers' party and the Greens after he secured a narrow victory in October.

Most people working in the city commute from the neigbouring countries and are set to benefit from the free public transport system.

Google confirms chat app Allo will soon shut down
In this case, many of Allos features were ported to Android Messages, the default SMS and soon-to-be RCS client on Android phones. Moreover, the American-tech giant had also lost its Allo lead - Amit Fulay to Facebook earlier this year in January.

It's understood abolishing all public transport fares will save the government money on the collection and processing of fares. A recent study cited by The Guardian showed that drivers in the capital spent an average of 33 hours in traffic snarl-ups in 2016.

Around 200,000 others cross the border to Germany, France and Belgium daily. The two-time prime minister promised voters that environmental concerns would be of paramount importance while he remained in office, The Guardian reported.

There is already free transport for under 20s while secondary school students can use free shuttles between schools and their homes.

The finer details are yet to be determined, including what do about first and second- class carriages on trains.

Bettel's progressive government will also consider introducing two new public holidays and legalizing the purchase, possession and consumption of cannabis for recreational use. The result gave the coalition 31 seats in the 60-seat chamber.
