Using the Public Transport Ticket System in Prague

Posted on 11th March 2012 by

Most visitors to Prague will travel around the city either on foot or using a tram, bus or the metro. Depending on what mode of transport you intend to use, there are two types of ticket available: transfer tickets and non-transfer tickets.

As the name suggests, transfer tickets are transferrable, meaning you can use them to board trams, buses, the metro or even the funicular up to Petrin Hill. Non-transferrable tickets are cheaper, but can only be used for trams and buses. Be sure to use one of the validation machines in the station or on-board your chosen mode of transport before your journey begins. Beware – failure to do this can result in a fine.

If you’re staying in Prague for several days, it may be worth investing in a short-term transfer ticket to save yourself time and expense. 24 hour tickets can be purchased for 100 CZK for adults, whilst 5 day tickets are available for 550 CZK.
