Katarína Svitková, our research associate, wrote a policy paper on sustainable mobility in Prague. According to Katarína, cities play an important role in reducing the carbon footprint. Therefore, one of the key areas to focus on is urban transport.

The latter has not come back to the pre-pandemic levels, limiting the revenue of city transportation companies. This poses a challenge when it comes to financing operations and modernization of urban transport systems.
