buses are an important means of public transport in Luxembourg. All buses in the country are also operated by the Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois (CFL).
There is a uniform tariff system for buses and trains. In addition to first and second class tickets for short trips of up to ten kilometers (valid for one hour), there is also a day pass, also first and second class available.

Many travelers choose to buy the Luxemburg Card. With it, the use of buses and trains is free of charge. There are also discounts on admission prices for various sights. Another option is the Benelux Tourrail Pass.
However, the timetables of the well-developed bus network are not always ideal for travelers, especially in rural areas, but rather are geared towards the needs of school children and commuters. In some villages and towns, for example, the buses only run a few times a day and rarely or not at all on Sundays.
