      They must not spend much on their military and other government services if they can afford to make public transit free.

              Given that a freight train needs a passport to get turned around without uncoupling in Lux, I'm not impressed.

              Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                There is free public transport in numerous areas in the USA.

                Also drunks are usually offered free transport here in the USA by various anti drunk driver groups. Homeless folks are allowed to ride trains or buses all night if its cold out. People should want their own house, their own car. That is freedom and the successful areas of the world see families of 4-6 having 2 or more cars.

                Everyone should have their own car. Look at Ireland today, The modern Irish family of 4 has two cars where in the past they had no cars or if lucky had one car.

                With exception to a few major cities Public transport more or less Buses can be a very bad sight, a sign of poverty and or laziness. Its one thing to get on the Subway in Manhattan, but buses clog up traffic and take to long to transport folks.

                Though btw many folks in NYC have their own cars and that is the American way. They might have to deal with the NYC traffic, but at times it beats being on the subway or bus with the characters that get on public transport. The foul smell and poor environment of numerous public transport serves as a turn off. Many people also feel safer when they are in control of the ride hence they prefer their own car.

                  Luxemborg is rank #2

                  Canada isn't ranked in the top 15.

                  US is 12th.

                      Military not. In other domains they're pretty good.
