Prague's integrated transportation system


Prague's integrated transportation system


The Prague metro has been in operation since 1974 and its three lines (A = green, B = yellow, C = red) are still being extended. The metro operates daily from 5 a.m. to midnight. It is easy to find your way around the metro plan, and you will surely quickly learn how to discern directions and change lines.

Trams and buses are usually in operation between 4:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Night buses and night trams operate outside these hours, but you should expect to wait a little longer for your ride, as the intervals are usually around 40 minutes.

For more information about each of the lines and the overall system, please visit or call the following information centers. The information is available in Czech, English, German and Russian.

The tickets for public transportation are very easy to use. One transfer ticket costing CZK 26 will allow you to travel by all means of transport (metro, bus, tram) for 75 to 90 minutes. You can purchase the tickets at vending machines, which are located in metro station foyers, or at newspaper and tobacco stands. There you can also buy a one-day pass (CZK 100) or a multiple-day pass (3 days CZK 330, 5 days CZK 500). Children up to 6 can travel free of charge, while children 6 to 15 years of age can travel for CZK 13.

Charge payable for carriage of various items is paid by a transfer ticket for CZK 13. This charge is payable for carriage of items larger than 25 x 45 x 70 centimeters.

Free of charge carriage applies to children up to the age of 6, prams with babies,  dogs in carriers (without a carrier, the price is the same as a single transfer ticket for an adult person) or, for example, one ski-set with poles. Transporting bicycles on the metro is free.
