Prague Public Transport Tickets and Passes

There are several types of public transport tickets in Prague, which are distinguished by their length of validity - from 30 minutes to 72 hours. If you're planning to see some sights and use public transport for a period of 2 - 5 days, consider buying the Prague Visitor Pass, which provides access to many Prague's historical monuments, museums and galleries, as well as unlimited travel on Prague public transport, including from and to the airport.

Short-Term Tickets (30 min. to 3 days)
Ticket Validator at a Metro Station
You can choose from several types of short-term tickets to travel around Prague. They can all be used on any type of public transport as many times and with as many transfers as you like for the duration of the time period for which they are valid. To take the funicular to Petřín, you either need to buy a special 60 CZK ticket at the funicular station or use the 24-hour or 72-hour tickets. 30-minute and 90-minute tickets are NOT valid on the funicular.

To mark the start of the validation period, you must punch the ticket in one of the validation machines that are located at the entrance to every metro station and on trams and buses.

Short-term tickets can also be used for traveling from and to the Prague airport on trolleybus 59 (from Nádraží Veleslavín station, metro A) and bus 100 (from Zličín station, metro B). They are NOT valid on Airport Express buses that connect the Prague airport with the main train station.
