Luxembourg residents are entering the final days of using “Moien” as accepted currency when boarding the bus.
For generations, Luxembourg citizens have used the word “Moien” to ‘pay’ for bus rides. Walking straight onto the bus confidently and giving the impression that you definitely have a valid bus pass in your pocket has long been a tradition in the Grand Duchy.
Now as the 1st March approaches when free transport across the country will become free, many residents are confused how this will effect driver / passenger relations.
Benelux News managed to speak with some bus users ahead of this historic ruling.
“Wait….. What…. You mean we had to pay before?” said one passenger.
While others were considering buying a 1st class ticket just to get away from ‘commoners’ using the free carriages on the train.
How this will effect the comfort of trains and buses in the future, only time will tell.
