Retail of vehicles, servicing, research and development KAR group is one of the greatest members of the group ČSAD Ostrava. Their product and service portfolio is large enough to fill half of this magazine. In twenty-two years of the company’s history, KAR group has developed a network of sixteen facilities of their own and a range of contracted partners so that they now cover the entirety of the Czech Republic. Annually they service about 1,500 buses and 6,500 trucks, run their own towing fleet, and manage the 24/7 dial helpdesk K24 service.
