Meet | Kussbus

Kussbus is Luxembourg’s first ecofriendly, door-to-door shuttle service for commuters.  We want to make commuting comfortable, flexible & transfer-free. Via the Kussbus App, our passengers can book, pay & monitor their rides to & from work in only a few steps.

Kussbus calculates the best communal stops on its route – all within walking distance for passengers – to have the fewest number of stops possible. We want to give our passengers some of their free time back, which they can use to listen to music, enjoy a good book or get some work done. We guarantee available seats, free Wi-Fi & USB-cable charger stations in every bus. 

Everyday life is unpredictable, so passengers can change their bookings up until the last second. We want to revolutionize the way people commute, give them back some of their well-deserved free time & reduce the number of cars on our streets.
