Travel tickets

Postby Argyle » 17-Aug-03 16:15

Hi everyone, I'm due to go to Prague for the first time in a couple of weeks and have a little question about the tickets for metro/bus/tram. I will be getting a 7 day ticket (250cz?) does this entitle me to travel on any public transport in any direction for the whole of the 7 days??
Thanks

Argyle,

A short-term ticket is good for transportation on the Prague metro, trams, buses, and the funicular in any direction. The 7-day ticket is valid for 168 hours from the time of first use. When you first use the ticket, you will stamp it in the machine on a bus or tram or upon entering the metro.

According to the Prague Public Transit website, the current price for a 7-day ticket is 250 Kč.

So to clarify this, during the 7 days I can travel on any mode of transport with just the one ticket?

Yes, just carry the ticket with you and you won't need anything else for public transportation within the Prague city limits.

Hi Argyle,

If I'm not mistaken you can get a 14-day ticket for something like 30 crowns more than the 7-day one.
When you're in Prague you could go to PD Praha offices at I.P. Pavlova (close to the C line metro station) and ask for more detailed information and, of course, you can also buy your tickets there.
