People living in or visiting Monaco will be able to benefit from free bus journeys until November 27, as part of a trial aiming to reduce traffic, greenhouse gas emissions and eventually, to launch a scheme designed to improve the network. 

Monaco has 38,000 residents, and an additional 100,000 people arrive in the principality each day to work or as tourists. This makes for heavy traffic within its 2km² area. 

The trial means that people can travel on all of Compagnie des Autobus de Monaco’s (CAM) seven day lines, two night lines and port shuttle service for free.

By encouraging people to take the bus, the principality hopes to reduce the number of vehicles that circulate daily by 10,000 (or 5%), and collect data on the bus stops which are most commonly used so as to offer a better service in future.

The scheme will cost the principality €600,000, with an additional €50,000 for the associated advertising campaign.
