These projects are a set of smart and modern solutions via which the City of Pilsen is striving to make the lives of both its citizens and visitors better and more pleasant. Some “tricks” are already in use, others are being put into practice, and more are being worked on by individual groups.
Smart City Pilsen Projects
We work continually with data describing the city as a living organism while analysing its condition.
We have a complete strategy for the Smart City area, which we work with and update based on the analyses.
By gradual implementation of all projects, we are changing Pilsen, making it a city which we all want to live in.
Open data is information and numbers freely available on the internet in a structured and machine-readable form and made available in a way that does not impose unnecessary technical or other barriers to their use. The format and structure of open data therefore allows for their mass computer processing, for which the publisher has given legal permission. As a result, they can continue to be freely processed, even within software applications.
All important information in one place. Collecting current data about life in the city that can be really useful - this is another mission of the TUTA Pilsen Project. Are you looking for information about water or heating outages? Do you need to see the current traffic situation, closures, accidents or use breaking news from public transport? TUTA Pilsen is here for you.

Pilsen residents have been using the city chip card since May 2004. From the original check-in and reservation system, the functions of the Pilsen Card have been expanded many times. Not only does the card allow uploading of subscriptions or cash for public transport and IDP rides, but it can also be used for booking tickets to selected institutions, for paying parking fees, in school canteens, businesses, as an attendance system in schools and day care centers, as a library card or as a discount card within the bonus program.
As a modern city Pilsen offers its citizens the option of a shared car, the so-called Karkulka, as an alternative mean of transport. The service is operated by Pilsen’s municipal transport company and is ideal for those who travel irregularly or do not want to have their own car. The price depends on the kilometers and a rental of shared car. Using the service saves money and the environment. The cars are regularly serviced and cleaned.
