Experts advise postponing overhaul of the Prague public transport network

Experts have recommended postponing a planned overhaul of the Prague public transport network, the internet daily idnes reported on Thursday. The extensive changes in public transport, aimed at saving 400 million crowns annually, were to have been introduced in September but a commission of experts said the planned changes had been poorly communicated and that not everything had been adequately prepared for a smooth transition. The overhaul of the system includes changes to bus and tram lines and the introduction of mini-buses mainly in the suburbs. The city hall is to make a final decision on the proposed postponement in mid-August.
