TODAYS SITUATION IN LUXEMBOURG Luxembourg's government provides a scheme (M PASS) with reduced ticket prices covering Luxembourg COUNTRY for Administrations. A yearly renewable convention has to be signed with Transport Ministry. Costs depends of quantities ordered : if more than 200 M Pass: 320 EUR/year = 26.7 EUR/month
TODAYS SITUATION IN BRUSSELS Commission reimburses to the civil servants: 50% of MONTHLY ticket up to 60 km (city and train) under the condition to give up parking place. MAX VALUE REIMBURSMENT is 137 EUR*50% = 68 EUR/month A PARKING SPACE AT COM. COSTS > 68 EUR/month. CONCLUSION: For Luxembourg, a M PASS is CHEAPER that what colleagues from Brussels can get, than the parking space costs.
PROPOSAL LUXEMBOURG FREE MONTHLY COUNTRY TICKET (M PASS) with condition to give up parking space. COST FOR COMMISSION = Subsidy of the Lux Government = M-PASS 26,7 EUR/month by person (if order of 200 M-PASS minimum) instead of presently 16.7 EUR. CONCLUSION: M PASS would cost only 10 EUR/month more than today jobkaart AND would be useful for all colleagues commuting in Luxembourg country.
