The Czech business mogul Daniel Křetínsky has acquired Brno’s Zvonařka bus station through his property company EP Real Estate. According to the website Zdopravy.cz, this follows a transaction in which he acquired the bus transport company Tourbus, which owned the station. In 2020, Tourbus made a loss of CZK 7.5 million (on revenues of CZK 75 million), following the collapse in demand for transportation. The contractor PS Brno completed a CZK 105 million reconstruction of the station earlier this year on the basis of a design by Chybik + Kristof Architects & Urban Designers. European funds covered the majority of the costs of the project, which included the construction of a new waiting room, an elevator and a 53-spot P+R facility. Křetínsky, who owns the Sparta football club, also picked up a 27% share in the English Premier League team Westham United a few months ago.
