PRAGUE METRO - PRAGUE TRAMS - PRAGUE BUS

Prague MetroPRAGUE METRO - A speedy way to get around Prague, the Prague Metro or Underground is clean and efficient. In October 2004, there are two types of tickets an 8 crown ticket (about 20p) for four stops of the Prague Metro, and 12 crown tickets (about 30p) for any longer Metro journey.

Before you set out on your journey, check your Prague Metro Map (See Maps Section) – note the last station in the direction you want to go (so you don’t end up heading the wrong way). You can buy tickets in any Metro Station, your hotel, etc. You can buy the tickets in advance of your journey, just stick it in the ticket validating machine as you start your journey and the ticket will be date and time stamped.

 

Prague TramPRAGUE TRAMS may be a little slower but a marvellous way to get around – you can see much more. Each tram stop gives a list of stops for each tram route, a timetable for it (absolutely accurate). For trams you need a 12 Kc ticket and again there’ll be a yellow ticket machine where you get on. As you wait for your tram, count the stops to your destination.

 

Prague Bus StationPRAGUE BUS - As Prague’s Metro (underground system) and Tram Service are so good, buses are not used that often. Prague Bus Service mainly covers the outskirts of the city. Prague’s bus service is quite regular during the day with buses running from 5am in the morning until around midnight every day. Bus fares are also very cheap. Prague also has ‘Night Buses’ which run from midnight to 5am in the morning when the day buses have stop and have buses every half hour or so.

If you would like to take the bus from Prague to another part of the Czech Republic you can do so. They have National Bus Service which runs to most other cities. If you would like to check out the fares and timetable of these journeys, take a look at their website. www.jizdnirady.cz
