Public transport in Prague – basic information
Tickets can be purchased in vending machines (coins only, vending machines returns change) at most tram or bus stops and at the metro entrances. Some newspaper stalls and shops sell tickets too. More info on purchasing the tickets can be found at DPP website (EN, DE).
Tickets vary only in their validity period (30 minutes, 90 minutes, 1 day, 3 days) and can be used for metro, trams, buses (except AE lines from/to the airport), city train lines, funicular and ferries in Prague. The number of transfers does not matter – you can travel and transfer between lines and types of transport at will and as long as you have a valid ticket.
Ticket price is based on the validity period: 30 minutes – 24 CZK, 90 minutes – 32 CZK, 1 day – 110 CZK, 3 days – 310 CZK (discounted to half price for children between 6 and 15 years old, except for the 3-day ticket). For the actual and detailed pricing information, please visit the DPP website (EN, DE).
When you enter the public transport (or at the metro entrance), you need to mark the ticket correctly. There is a dedicated area on the ticket for this – the machine will print the current time there, so you will know if it’s still valid. Ticket is valid from then on for the full marked time (eg. 1 day ticket = 24 hours from the time of stamp). You mark the ticket only once – on the first boarding. When changing the lines, just walk through the door or the underground entrance. Multiple times and/or badly marked (as well as unmarked) tickets are not valid!
The page Find a connection (EN, DE) provides a search for the fastest connection within the Prague Integrated Transportation (PID) system, including metro, trams, buses, city train lines, etc. (you can also find specific timetables there).
Plans for public transport in Prague (EN) can be also downloaded in PDF and PNG format (useful in case you don’t have mobile Internet access).
