Aug. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- Prague, the venue for 2nd Annual Urban Transport and Mobility Europe 2012, falls into this category case and point. Before the transition to a market economy, Prague faced sustained and rapid urbanization. Czechoslovak socialist policy advocated significant rural to urban migration. Luckily, Prague's municipal transport managers were able to stay ahead of its rapidly growing populace.

When economic reforms and foreign investment followed the transition to market based economy, it might be said that Prague had enough infrastructure in reserve to handle the resulting growth  and deliver on the expectations brought by multinational companies and their increasingly international workforce.

That said, Prague and its sister cities in the former Eastern bloc share some unique challenges. With highly functional systems in place, the leading need is to maintain investment, and even more critically, ridership. Prague's modal split has shifted from 80% Public Transport / 20% Private Car (in 1989)  to 60% PT/40% PC (2009).

Like many other European cities with 1st tier transport, Prague now faces the challenge of ensuring sustainable system wide development, amidst the challenge to go green and to find necessary capital.
It also faces a strong cultural shift, where its ridership is being courted by unsustainable levels of in-town private car ownership and usage.
