Bus

The country's public-transport bus network can be divided into four sub-networks. Night-time transport is provided by services such as the Late Night Bus and the Night Rider. School transport is also extremely well organised in the Grand Duchy.

Bus networks

  • The network operated by regional carriers (Régime Général des Transports Routiers, RGTR) is the only bus network with national coverage. It serves various places in the Grand Duchy by means of a network of local connections. It is financed and organised by the Department of Transport.
  • The TICE (Syndicat des Tramways Intercommunaux du Canton d'Esch-sur-Alzette), is an inter-municipality network covering nine municipalities in the Terres Rouges region in the south-western part of the country.
  • With the AVL (Autobus de la Ville de Luxembourg), the capital has developed its own urban public transport network.
  • The inter-municipal City-Bus networks supplement the local offer of public transport in a growing number of municipalities.

City-Bus

A growing number of municipalities offer the City-Bus service in addition to regular timetabled bus lines.

The Citybus service allows passengers to travel spontaneously and flexibly throughout the municipality.

Depending on the municipality, the service is available either on demand (requested at least one hour in advance) or according to a fixed regular timetable.

  • More information on the City-Bus is available at www.mobiliteit.lu

Night-time transport

A number of public transport services are available on request to take you out to a restaurant, bar, disco, party or any other evening event and/or back home.

A good number of municipalities offer the Late Night Bus service so that you can enjoy yourself at the weekend without worrying about transport.

Night Rider is another bookable night-time transport service used by many municipalities to offer residents transport at a very reasonable price.

School transport

The municipalities are responsible for providing school transport for pupils attending fundamental school. Just ask for details and timetables at the municipal offices of the place where you live. The municipalities offer this service free of charge.

For secondary education, more than 700 buses provide public transport throughout the country every day. They all help to transport pupils to the various secondary schools in the Grand Duchy.

A school card ('carte scolaire'), issued by schools to each pupil when they join the school, allows pupils to travel free of charge on public transport between their home and school.
