Prague Public Transport

Prague Public Transport

Prague has a very efficient public transport system, including a bus, tram and metro network which can take you to any part of the city.

How to get transport tickets and passes?

Transport tickets and passes can be purchased in any metro station, either at a vending machine or ticket office. Keep in mind that the vending machines only accept coins and can be used in English. Passengers can also buy their tickets in certain newsagents, tourist information centres or tobacco shops. If you are planning on taking the tram, we recommend getting the tickets beforehand.

The system is similar to that in many other cities, it remains valid for a period of time throughout which you can use it as many times as you like

Always validate your ticket

Passengers will always need to validate their ticket before getting on the metro or once on the bus and tram in the yellow machines. This is important as there are frequent controls by inspectors, who will fine you if you haven't validated your ticket.
