Transport or traffic services are very important factors that influence the socioeconomic status of a region and the spatial interactions of a society. This proposition can be applied to the changes in regional diversity and economic development of municipalities in the Czech Republic. Accessibility, as a geographical phenomenon, is manifest in many spheres of life; above all, in the socioeconomic sphere. Also, the boundary between good and bad accessibility is relative. This paper deals with the evaluation and comparison of indicators of transport accessibility and transport service level with socioeconomic indicators in Czech municipalities. The goal is to find if there is a relationship between levels of transport accessibility and transport service and the socioeconomic level in Czech municipalities. The analysis will be quantitative. We will use correlation, regression and factor analysis, as well as geographical analysis based on maps.

Key words
the Czech Republic, transport availability, correlation analysis, regression analysis, level of socioeconomic development, municipalities
