Free? Nothing is free. Hell, they're even LITERALLY taxing the air we breath now.

yeah, like any sort of "carbon tax" nonsense. its literally taxing the air we breath. some recent research i read showed tha plant growth has accelerated exponentially in the last century likely because plants need co2 to build themselves.

warmer climate extends growing seasons. But that doesn't make it universally a good thing.

Haha, they can afford it) What are they, 50 km or less between any 2 point within their territory.

I was gonna say you can throw a stone from one side if the country to the other. I drove through it once without realizing it.

As much as the word "free" in this context annoys me this is an interesting proposal and I'm keen to see how it works out
Ekitchi Hoshi 8 months
Yeah, I'm also curious to see how it turns out. Public transportation tend to be more convenient and more efficient the more people use it. This might lead to a serious improvement overall. Of course it's not technically free since it willl be payed for through taxes but that's the most convenient way of describing it. It's like the leftist complaing about the term "illegals" they say no person is illegal, it's their situation that is illegal. But we all know what it means, it's just convenient.

Free to the public. Not the taxpayers... because nothing is free. So tired of these retahd headlines.

aren't taxpayers part of the public? I'm confused.

@Sean, part but not all. They foot the bill

getting hang up on the word free is a little silly. We all know it's paid for through taxes, free is the most convenient way of describing it. It's like leftists getting hang up on the word "illegals" because no person is illegal, it's their situation that is illegal. We all know what it means.

"Luxembourg makes EVERYONE pay for public transport whether they use it or not" Fixed.

First and no doubt only. With a population of 590,000 that’s no big deal. Let me guess, next will be Andorra and The Vatican City?

More urbanized self-empowered liberal elites stealing from the poor of their country while patting their own backs.

Except in tiny Luxemburg the poorest of the poor are probably lower middle class or retired.
Ekitchi Hoshi 8 months
not to mention that public transport tend to be used the most by the poor and taxes affect the rich at a higher rate, so your statement is completely incorrect. It's actually, the rich being made to pay for public transportation whether they use it or not. Also public transportation tend to increase in efficiency and convenience the more people use it. So I'm curious to see how it turns out because it might turn out very well.

Good. This is how humanity wins.

This is how the rich and urban siphon money from the poor.

People not getting paid for the fruit of their labour is not winning.

If it’s free then who the hell is the amazing charity guy doing the giving? Winston Churchill made a fair point when he said that there is nothing a government can give you that it hasn’t first taken away. Seems that it’s pretty easy to fool most of the people most of the time lol.

Luxembourg sounds like a great place to visit.

Lacewood 8 months
Luxembourg will suffer from either bloated traffic or increased taxes. whenever anyone in a position of authority simply saying the word, "free" often means shift of the country budget in which one way or another falls to their citizens.

Great! Now econ morons who see the word "FREE" + public services + name of country where it's implemented in would equate it as something very viable and applicable to all countries! IF ONLY, (insert impossible ideal here like eliminating all forms of corruption) happens. Worse, they might just run for public office and spout this nonsense.

Space Monkey 8 months
Free public transport sounds good,doesn't it? But just like free health care and free schools it isn't really free, taxes will have to rise to pay for it.

Interesting. How did they force the bus / tram drivers to drive people around for free? Who provided buses, fuel?

This just goes to show that all countries need to be the size of Luxembourg from now on.
