The managers of the municipal transport institutions in Chisinau were last week on a study visit to the cities of Prague and Brno (Czech Republic), to familiarize themselves with the best practices in the field of urban public transport development.
The study visit was organized with the support of the European Union, within the "MOVE IT like Lublin" project - an initiative for the sustainable development of public transport in the city of Chisinau.
During their stay in Prague, the representatives from Chisinau visited several relevant institutions: the Municipal Department of Transport, the Traffic Management Center, the Public Transport Company.
Likewise, they traveled to Brno in the south of the Czech Republic, where the main objectives visited were the Transport Authority, the Herman Company and the Traffic Management Organization (Brněnské komunikace).
The study visits are an opportunity to take good European examples of mobility planning, real-time traffic management and ensuring an efficient urban transport management system.
The "MOVE IT like Lublin" project - the initiative for the sustainable development of public transport in the municipality of Chisinau, financed by the European Union, is implemented on the basis of a partnership between the City Hall of Chisinau and the City Hall of Lublin in Poland. The project will be implemented by 2025 and will provide support to transform the city's public transport services into a more inclusive, safer, more resilient and sustainable transport system. The total budget of the project is in the amount of 3,500,000 euros, of which 3,325,000 euros is the contribution of the European Union in the form of a grant, and 175,000 euros are allocated by the Chisinau City Hall.
