Luxembourg is set to abolish all fares on public transport across the country, the Independent reports.
Currently, fares are all capped at a low level of €2 for up to two hours of travel, which covers almost any journey in the small nation - which is about the same size as Oxfordshire.
However, a new coalition government is taking office in the Grand Duchy - promising the abolishment of train, tram and bus tickets next summer.
Part of the cost will apparently be covered by removing a tax break for commuters, and will encourage a shift away from the use of private cars in Luxembourg, where traffic congestion is a serious problem, especially in the city centres.
However, not everyone is convinced about the historic change.
Claude Moyen, a teacher who travels by train to his school in the town of Diekirch every day, told the Independent he feared the quality of journeys might suffer.
"I'm not sure if making public transport free here in Luxembourg will take more people out of their cars," he said.
