Luxembourg’s transport ministry is calling for schools to start later because of growing congestion on Luxembourg’s roads.
According to sustainable development and transport ministry spokeswoman Dany Frank, some public buses will set out earlier than the normal scheduled times because schools have complained that students are arriving late for the first classes of the day. Meanwhile additional buses are being added to ferry students to secondary school.
“I can confirm we are well aware of transport issues in the grand duchy and we are making a lot of effort,” Frank said in an email sent to Delano on Friday evening, adding: “Furthermore, we are trying to persuade high schools to start later, at around 8:30am, for example.”
Among the bus lines that have been adapted are line 161 (Remich-Limpertsberg), which from 10 December will set out 10 minutes earlier for the school run, line 211 (Sanem- Geesseknäppchen), setting out 10 minutes earlier from 6 November, line 151 (Ahn to Limpertsberg), setting out 7 minutes earlier since 9 October, and line 342 (Bascharage-Mamer Lycée), setting out 5 minutes earlier and 15 minutes earlier for 2 journeys, since 5 October.
An additional bus has been added for the school run for lines 479 (Berg-Lënster Lycée), 582 (Bissen to Atert Lycée), 942 (Ettelbruck- Bettendorf) and 196 (Val de Roeser to Geesseknäppchen).
