In the UK we seem to have been granted a semi- permanent fuel duty freeze, whilst, unbelievably, “rail travellers in Britain prepare for tickets to cost 3.1 per cent more in 2019.” Meanwhile the ‘Independent‘ has discovered, in an interesting article, that Luxembourg is likely to implement entirely free public transport from next summer.
In addition to the long standing free bus service in the small French town of Châtauroux, the larger urban area of Dunkerque has recently introduced its own completely free bus service.
I do hope the ‘Lexiteers’ are listening.
Perhaps it is just the ‘Bloody EU forcing us to make our public transport free’?
Or could it be the start of another Universal Basic Service?
