* PUBLIC TRANSPORT:

Prague’s transit authority has announced a tender with an estimated value of over CZK 80 billion for the purchase of driverless trains for the city’s C and D Metro lines, a spokesperson said on Thursday. The Prague Public Transport Company aims to select a supplier and sign a contract with them by October 2025. The trains should be delivered by 2029.
