Summary/Abstract: Environmental issues, decreasing reserves of oil, and growing population in larger cities are the main reasons for developing efficiency benchmarking measurement models of public transport systems. The objective of this paper is to analyze technical efficiency and service effectiveness of public transport systems in 19 cities in the Czech Republic. In order to evaluate the overall performance, network Data Envelopment Analysis [DEA) was employed. Two inputs [number of employees and costs), two intermediate measures [vehicle kilometers and seat kilometers) and two outputs [number of passengers and sales) were used.
