Night Rider & Nightlifebus
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
WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR A RIDE WHEN YOU HAVE A NIGHT CARD?
For every citizen owning a Night Card, the Municipality of Niederanven will pay for the transport costs up to 40 € / trip. Further costs will be charged by the Administration. The only condition is that either the destination or the pick-up address is located on the municipal territory*.
For any unclaimed or not cancelled by time trip (at least 2 hours before the confirmed pickup time) the Niederanven Administration will send you an invoice.
When boarding, remember to show your Night Card to the driver!

The first regular night bus line in Luxembourg was inaugurated April 30, 1999 by the municipality of Niederanven. Since then the Nightlifebus enjoys a constant popularity and transports every weekend between 100 and 150 passengers of all generations.
The bus serves all the localities of the municipality and has a regular connection with the City-Night-Bus from the Luxembourg-City Centre.
The bus runs from Wednesday to Saturday every 60 minutes from 11:30 pm. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, the last departure is at 1.30 am in the City center, on Fridays and Saturdays at 3.30 am.
On 14 March 2003 already, the Mayor Raymond Weydert had the pleasure to honor the 25.000st passenger of the Nightlifebus Niederanven. Since November 1, 2004 the number of passengers exceeded 40,000.
The town also offers transports to major special events in Luxembourg City, if they are not accessible with regular bus lines. These services function with additional buses on the eve of the National Day and New Year's Eve, for the “Rock-um-Knuedler” event and the “Schueberfouer”.
