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.
