Prague City Council says overhaul of city transport network going ahead as planned

The Prague City Council has announced it is going ahead with major changes to the city transport network despite warnings from experts who say they have been ill-prepared and poorly communicated. The overhaul of the system, which aims to save 400 million crowns annually, includes scrapping certain bus and tram lines, re-routing others and introducing mini-buses mainly in the suburbs. The Prague-based NGO Auto-Mat has accused the authorities of squandering money and making passengers foot the bill. The changes are due to come into effect in September.
