Prague City Buses

Although when visiting the centre of the city metro and tram is the best option, the bus is a good alternative if you want to visit Terezín or Karlovy Vary cheaply.

The bus network in Prague covers the outskirts of the city centre, since this part of the city is already well-connected thanks to the metro and tram.

The two buses that visitors will most likely use are the 119 and 110, which is the cheapest way to get from Prague Airport to the city centre.

Schedules

The urban bus schedule is very similar to the tram. The daytime buses run from 4:30 am until midnight and the night buses run from midnight to 4:30 am.

The daytime city buses will leave every 10 minutes at rush hour and every 15- 30 minutes at off-peak.

Nigh time buses run every 30 minutes (501, 502, 504, 505, 508, 509, 511), every 60 minutes (503, 506, 510, 512) and 90 minutes (507).
