WHAT IS THE “NIGHT RIDER”?
The Night Rider is an individual night bus service without fixed stops and without fixed timetable. Reliable and safe, with no need to find a parking space, the Night Rider brings you to the place of your choice and back home. The service operates over the entire Grand Duchy and works exclusively on weekends between 6 pm and 5 am.
Online Booking: You can choose and book your Night Rider run conveniently online up to 60 minutes before your pick-up time. The only requirement for booking is to have a valid Night Card, credit card or Digicash. If your desired pick-up time is booked out, you will automatically be offered an alternative travel schedule.
The pick-up SMS: As traffic or weather conditions may influence the journey time of the Night Rider, and by the necessity to combine with other travel bookings, the departure time may differ up to 10 minutes. This is why you will always get a pick-up SMS at least 10 minutes in advance to inform you about when exactly your bus will be arriving.
The cost model: The price of a Night Rider booking is distance-dependent – independent for how many persons (max 8 ) the reservation was booked. It is always the shortest route that will be calculated, even if the bus has to pick up / drop off other passengers by a longer way, true to the motto: The more people one booking contains, the cheaper the price per person.
WHO CAN HAVE A NIGHT CARD AND WHERE CAN YOU GET IT?
Niederanven citizens aged 16 to 25 can buy a Night Card for an annual fee of 40 € and adults up from 26 years for 80 € at the Municipality Office

Pedibus Niederanven: a project that works!
The Pedibus is a school “bus” system, done only by walking and works on the following principle: adults accompany a group of children on their way to school. Like a traditional bus, the Pedibus picks up the children at different predefined places and leads them to school on a fixed route and according to a fixed schedule.
How does the Pedibus work?
The children wait for the Pedibus at the agreed meeting point. Throughout the journey, done by walking only, the Pedibus picks up children joining the convoy at the various stops. Nothing is easier! However, a registration is required.
The children, in the company of their comrades and two adult guides, will be able to reach their school in a safe, healthy and ecological way.
This service is offered for children up from cycle 1. A covered cart transports additional material and school bags. The Pedibus circulates in all weathers, which by experience poses no problem if children are well protected by adequate clothing.
Why should our children walk to school?
- Going on foot is good for your health!
In order to avoid overweight problems often due to lack of movement and a sedentary lifestyle, parents should encourage their children to walk more regularly.
- Going on foot is more fun!
Meeting, discussing with other children and discoveries along the way are of great importance for the social development of our children.
- Going on foot is good for the environment!
Car traffic on the way to school and in front of school buildings causes a significant pollution of the environment. Therefore walking contributes to protecting the environment.
Up from the start of the 2019/2020 school year,
Line A of the Pedibus operates in Niederanven in the streets Dicks, Michel Lentz, Rénert and Laach. The journey takes approximately 22 minutes.
Line B of the Pedibus operates in Oberanven in the “Wakelter”, in the streets Schetzel, Jean-Pierre Gloden and du Coin. This journey takes approximately 18 minutes.
The College of Alderman will introduce a third line for the school year 2020/2021 in the quarter “um Trenker” in Senningen.
• Appropriate signage provides maximum security for the Pedibus route.
