Bus route changes are being implemented mainly to accommodate ongoing tram line works and to ease congestion especially in the Gare area.

Whether linked to winter road prep or improving traffic related to tram works, Luxembourg will see a number of mobility-related changes kick off over the course of the week ahead.
The highways department (Administration des ponts et chaussées) has announced it will begin its preventative salting “dry tests”, this week. The salting tests, which should take place until mid-November, help authorities prep for winter and ensure equipment is running properly, new staff are familiarised with procedures, and so on. The tests run between 3-6am, so they shouldn’t impact morning commutes during those peak drive times.
Want to celebrate Halloween on the town? The City of Luxembourg announced on Monday that its night bus service will run its normal weekend hours and free of charge not just the 31 October-1 November night, but throughout the entire weekend (through 3 November).
Starting 3 November, commuters can expect a number of adaptations to bus schedules, including new routes (including additional night bus routes). The changes are being implemented mainly to accommodate ongoing tram line works and to ease Gare congestion in the process. There have been new signs and handouts provided in the city, informing the public of the upcoming changes, but passengers are also encouraged to stay up-to-date through mobiliteit.lu.
Neipperg car park set to reopen
Next Monday, 4 November, will also see the renovated Neipperg carpark reopen at 2pm. The site, the result of a €21mn investment, offers 677 parking spaces, 20 of which are reserved for electric vehicles, 15 for women, and 17 for those with reduced mobility.
A new brasserie is also in the works, although as reported by our Paperjam colleagues, it’s not set to open at the same time.
