Transportation in Prague

Public transport

Prague has a very efficient subway, tram and bus transportation system. On the new Prague underground, peak hours trains run every 1 or 2 minutes, and during off-peak hours at least every 10 minutes. The most recent information on Prague’s transportation system can be found on the official website.


The Prague Subway network consists of 3 lines designated by letters and differentiated in colour: A – green colour (Depo Hostivař station – Nemocnice Motol station), B – yellow colour (Černý most station – Zličín station), C – red colour (Letňany station – Háje station), with transfers possible at Museum station (lines A and C), Můstek station (lines A and B), Florenc station (lines B and C). Subway operates daily from 5 a.m. till midnight.


Daytime operation is from 5:00 till midnight. Night-time operation is from 00:00 (midnight) to 4:30 and is provided by tram numbers 91 to 99 with traffic intervals of 30 minutes. The central transfer-station for night-time lines is Lazarská stop. Tram schedules are located at individual stops.


The daytime and night-time operation of buses is similar to tram operation. Night-time service is provided by bus numbers 901 to 915.

Ticket Inspection

The validity of tickets can be checked by the ticket inspectors of Dopravní podnik (The Prague Public Transport Company) at any time during travel or stay in the Metro system. The ticket inspector is entitled to ask the passenger to produce his or her valid ticket, to confiscate invalid tickets, and to collect a penalty (1500 CZK, if paid at once 1000 CZK) in case of travel without a valid ticket. To prove their identity, inspectors produce yellow-and-red badges. They issue receipts for the penalty amounts.


Vaclav Havel Airport Prague handles flights of most European carriers and also overseas flights. It is located 30–45 minutes by car from the centre of Prague. There is a good connection between the airport and the city centre by public transport and taxis. You can easily get to the city centre using one of the public buses. For the quickest transport to the city centre or the nearest metro station, we advise using Line 100 direction Zličín (metro B), line 119 direction Nádraží Veleslavín (metro A) or line 191 direction Anděl (metro B).
