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.
