Almaty won the first place for the realization of the transport system reform at the European smart city forum “Smart city-2018” held in Lubliana. Among the 50 best world practices and innovative projects, Turkish Ankara with the tourist project “Ankara Park” and the Croatian Zagreb with “Return of the People to the Sava River” also entered the top three finalists.

The construction of two metro stations is continuing, which will make it possible to link the center with the sleeping areas and the annexed territories of the city.

Today, 97% of all transactions in public transport in Almaty are carried out by non-cash. An automated dispatching control system with a GPS system and video cameras on buses was introduced, as well as a system of fines for complaints from passengers when subsidizing carriers.

The city has a system of photo-video recording of traffic violations, 709 lanes are monitored, from next year a double increase in posts will begin.

In order to create a comfortable urban environment, two-thirds of the historic center of the city have been reconstructed, 524 streets and almost 1,400 old courtyards have been repaired. Replaced 300 km of channels and more than 800 km of utilities. Updated all subways of the city.

In shaping approaches to the implementation of transport reform, the city authorities cooperate with leading international experts.
