Prague Public Transport


The public transport system in Prague includes buses, trams, underground and funicular. The same tickets are used for all of these kinds. Note, that the tickets are not sold in the vehicles! This means you have to buy the ticket before - they are sold in news-stalls and in ticket machines. After entering any vehicle, you have to stamp the ticket in the stamp machine. Without stamping is the ticket invalid!

Here are types of tickets
