The concept, which is a significant element of being prepared new network of urban transport, has been presented to passengers and transport enthusiast on Wednesday, 5 September, in the transport organiser’s office.

In the next part of the meeting, Mr Aleksander Sobota, ZTM Deputy Director for transport, who at the same time heads the project team responsible for the optimisation of connections network and is a staff member of the Silesian University of Technology, presented the concept of establishing the metropolitan connections in detail. In accordance with the assumptions, they are to constitute the backbone of the urban transport network. Moreover, during the presentation also a design of delivery type connections has been presented, which in the future will enable transfer between lines to interested persons. The frequency and relationships of individual connection types were discussed, among other things, during the presentation.
