The origin of public transport in Brno dates back to 1869 when the operation of the first horse-drawn carriage from the city of Brno to Kralovo Pole commenced. A long evolution of Brno public transport began in 1884 with the introduction of a street steam tram, electrification of the tram in 1900, the bus in 1930, and the trolley bus in 1949.

The current network of Brno public transport includes more than 800km of lines. During the working day, about 560 vehicles transport almost one million passengers. The Brno PT is prepared for the continuous operation of almost 400,000 citizens of the city of Brno and its large surroundings.
