Luxembourg Transport Network
To describe Luxembourg's public transport system in one word, that word would be... colourful!
As you know Luxembourg's capital city shares the same name of the country itself.
There are no trams or trolleybuses anywhere in Luxembourg although there is plans to implementation of trams by 2017.
The network of bus services within the capital city is co-ordinated by the municipal authority. Some of the buses are operated by the municipal undertaking, others by private operators. A number of Luxembourg's city bus routes are operated by more than one company.
The latest colour scheme for Luxembourg's city bus network comprises multi-coloured stripes.
Buses carrying the Multiplicity name are operated by the municipal undertaking, but the livery is also worn by some vehicles provided by private operators.
A number of buses belonging to private operators wore their own operators' liveries.
Single-deck buses proudly proclaiming their hybrid credentials along the streets.
The diversity is amazing that you won't be surprised to spot a wide variety of vehicles such:
Standard single-deckers buses
Standard double-deckers buses
Buses run from 06:00 to approximately 24:00, depending on the service. Each bus stop has timetables and maps covering the entire Luxembourg network.
We'll start with an easy one - a line up of Volvo 7900 Hybrids
