Public transport in Prague

Prague has very good public transportation systems. The metro, trams and buses cover the majority of the city and outskirts. To move around town, we recommend using public transport over driving or taking a taxi. If you insist on taking taxi, consider downloading an app such as TaxifyLiftago or Uber to avoid unexpectedly high charges.

 

Tickets for public transport

You need to have a valid ticket before you get on the bus/tram/metro. You can buy transfer tickets for 30 minutes (30 CZK), 90 minutes (40 CZK), 24 hours (120 CZK) or 72 hours (330 CZK).

  • Paper one-off tickets are sold in the Prague Public Transit Co. info centresTicket vending machinesAdvanced Sales and selected wholesalers (Relay branches, news stands).
  • Cashless payment of fare – Terminals (validators) for the tickets are installed in all trams and in the metro vestibules.
  • PID lítačka app where you can search for connections and buy tickets. It applies to Prague Integrated Transport in Prague and Central Bohemian Region for all public transport.

 

From the airport to the Prague city centre

The connection between Václav Havel Airport Prague and Prague city centre is provided by public transport bus lines which operate at regular few-minute intervals. Bus stops are located directly in front of terminals. To get to Prague city centre we recommend taking the 119 bus (Terminal 1/Terminal 2 – Veleslavín train/metro station) and changing to metro Line A. You will need to purchase the 90 minutes ticket (40 CZK) before boarding the bus.

Or you can use the Airport Express bus, which connect the Main Railway Station (Praha Hlavni Nadrazi) with Václav Havel Airport Prague. There are no other stops. AE bus runs daily from 5 a.m. till 9 p.m. in regular interval of 30 minutes. Tickets can be bought directly from the bus driver (100 CZK) or online (8 EUR). Please note that usual Prague public transport tickets cannot be used in the AE bus line.

Night service (0:00 – 4:00 am): 910 bus in direction I.P. Pavlova station.
