Bus passengers should be aware that the capital’s bus network will undergo some changes this autumn.
Among the main reasons for the changes are the creation of a bus lane on boulevard Grand-Duchesse Charlotte, the opening of new tram stop Stärenplaz/Etoile and ongoing roadworks to expand the tram line to the train station. New maps and timetable leaflets will be available to the public at the Info-box in rue des Bains or the Mobilitéitszentral office at the central train station in early October.
From 15 October, bus lines 21, 22 and 28 will stop at Stärenplaz/Etoile, passing by the new bus lane created on boulevard Grand-Duchesse.
Lines 8 and 12 will operate from Stärenplaz/Etoile using boulevard Grand-Duchesse Charlotte, avenue Monterey (quai 3), boulevard Prince Henri and avenue de la Porte-Neuve.
Line 21 will serve P+R Lux-Sud instead of the Cloche d’Or, while line 22 will stop at Cloche d’Or.
People using the Stärenplaz/Etoile stop will be able to get a bus to the central train station every 3-4 minutes by hopping on lines 21, 22, 28 and 31 as well as regional or RGTR bus lines.
Line 31 will serve Reckenthal-Centre-Gare and vice versa only.
New line 32 will operate between Howald, Bonnevoie and the city centre in both directions.
The Verlorenkost bus stop will be removed from the line 31 itinerary. From this stop, passengers can still take lines 7 or 70.
New line 33 will operate during rush hour between Poutty Stein in Kirchberg and Primeurs in Strassen, replacing some journeys previously served by the 222 bus.
Ban de Gasperich
Luxembourg’s newest district in the south of the capital will be served by line 29, which will be extended. Its new terminus will be Guillaume Korll, instead of P+R Lux-Sud.
Line 26, meanwhile, is to be cancelled.
Line 23 will be extended from Gasperich to Bonnevoie, passing along boulevard Kockelscheuer and Rangwee. Instead of ending at François Hogenberg, its new terminus will be LTB in Bonnevoie.
Weekend travel changes
Line 17 will be extended on Saturdays and Sundays when the shops are open. Lines 1 and 22 will also be reinforced on Sundays when the shops are open.
Line 21 will better serve the ban de Gasperich at weekends.
Line 23 will operate on Sundays to its terminus Henri Dunant in Beggen.
Line 20 will now serve the Rehazenter in Kirchberg.
Lines 7, 20, 25 and 29 will now pass over the new CFL bridge, ensuring a better connection for people wishing to take the train in Cents-Hamm, a new hub which will enter into operation on 23 September.
