Luxembourg is the first country to fund public transportion with tax dollars

Luxembourg, one of the smallest and richest countries in Europe, is switching to taxpayer-funded public transportation. Public transportation costs will be distributed across every tax paying citizen instead of a per-use fare system. The move is aimed at reducing traffic congestion. Luxembourg citizens own more cars per capita than any other European country.

Please stop saying free. You know that's disingenuous.

Paid for by the hard working, for the lazy or unwilling to work or pay their fair share.

A city state that is subsidized by the E.U. Hardly considered a country

Imagine that. A country with money that actually shares some of it with its citizens. And voluntarily too. In this country you would be labeled a radical for having this idea or even worse.... a socialist!

If Luxembourg (a relatively rich country) can do it, then the US (the richest country) can do it too!

The county I live in is fully half the size of that country.

Why should people who don't need or want to use public transportation be forced to pay for it? Public transportation is a breeding ground for disease as well, good job passing this right during a pandemic.

The traffic problem in Luxembourg isn't due to households having more cars but an enormous amount of foreigners driving into Luxembourg for work every day. Making public transport free is going to ruin the whole system, and is only done because the Green Party minister of transport wants to build himself a statue with this.
