OECD Study on Transport Policy
IPR Prague participated in an OECD analysis on the topic of transport policy. OECD experts came to Prague in November 2018 to interview local stakeholders about urban and regional transport needs. Their analysis investigated into how better targeted investment and transport policies could improve access to jobs and services.
The two days of interviews pinpointed some of the issues that Prague is facing, such as the high volumes of car traffic from the surrounding Central Bohemian Region entering Prague on a daily basis, a consequence of rapid suburbanization. On the other hand, Prague's system of public transport is an example of a good practice that it can share with other cities – both in the quality of its service and in the way it is operated through ROPID (Regional Organizer of Prague Integrated Transport). The other case studies being included in the analysis are Vancouver, Madrid, and parts of Romania.
