Representatives of Ville de Luxembourg and Emile Weber have confirmed that a number of bus drivers will meet soon for a bareknuckle death fight.
Tensions have been steadily rising since the construction of the tram in Kirchberg with VDL drivers claiming that Emile Weber drivers “just dump” their passengers in the middle of nowhere and leaving them to join their cool, city people on their buses.
Claims that the people coming in from the villages smell of manure have so far not been proved, however there are several witnesses who claim just that.
VDL’s current president said in a statement: “We are not messing around any more. We are sick of picking up these stranded people, who could easily be driven in to town.”
A spokesman for Emile Weber responded with: “Bring it on, bitches! We have got nothing to worry about, their top driver couldn’t fight his way out of a paper bag!”
The exact date is yet to be arranged, but it is rumoured that the location will be somewhere near the gare.
More info as we receive it.
A spokesperson for the association of people who push in through the back doors of buses before other passengers can get off stated this morning that it’s members are getting very excited about the new tram coming and are “eager to get started”.
“Our members have been practising for months now and are highly confident we can cause just as much of a nuisance pushing our way on to the tram as we can with buses.”
In anticipation of the tram project, members of the association have been practising extra hard and even taking on challenges such as the side entrance doors to Utopolis and entrance to the Gare during rush hour.
“The trick will be pushing on but not breaking the tram doors”, said the spokesperson. “But we are confident we can pull this off.”
New proposals were put forward on Friday morning to replace current single deck buses with the smaller City Shopping Bus during peak periods.
With current buses already at full capacity, just how far can this trend go?
Benelux News team were the first to speak with a spokesman.
“We have been running buses with a single part during morning rush hour for some time now,” said the spokesman. “We wanted to see just how many people we could cram into a small space, while providing big double buses for the barely used village routes because the villagers like to spread out a bit.”
If the project proves to be a success, mini “shuttle” buses may also be considered.
