Public transport

Public transport in the Pilsen Region is provided by regional trains and regional bus lines. Pilsen Region invests financial resources from its budget to secure the public transport services on its territory. Each year the amount of money spend on the public transport services is increasing. The reason for the financial increase is mainly the global economic development but also regional focus on improving public transport connection and quality of the public transport in the region. Public transport services ordered by Pilsner Region are provided by contractual public transport providers, who receive financial compensation for the provided services under the Treaty of Public Service Obligation.
