Transportation in Prague
Prague has a very efficient subway, tram and bus transportation system. On the new Prague underground, peak hours trains run every 1 or 2 minutes, and during off-peak hours at least every 10 minutes. The most recent information on Prague's transportation system can be found on the official website www.dpp.cz
The Prague Subway (Metro) network consists of 3 lines designated by letters and differentiated in colour: A – green colour (Depo Hostivař station – Nemocnice Motol station), B – yellow colour (Černý most station – Zličín station), C – red colour (Letňany station – Háje station), with transfers possible at Museum station (lines A and C), Můstek station (lines A and B), Florenc station (lines B and C). Subway operates daily from 5 a.m. till midnight.
Daytime operation is from 4:30 a.m. till midnight. Night-time operation is from 00:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. and is provided by tram numbers 51 to 59 with traffic intervals 30 minutes. The central transfer-station for night-time lines is Lazarská stop. Tram schedules are located at individual stops.
The daytime and night-time operation of buses is similar to tram operation. Night-time service is provided by bus numbers 501 to 515. Bus schedules are located at individual stops.
Vaclav Havel Airport Prague handles flights of most European carriers and also overseas flights. It is located 30–45 minutes by car from the centre of Prague. There is a good connection between the airport and city centre by public transport and taxis. You can easily get to the city centre using one of the public buses. For the quickest transport to the city centre or the nearest metro station we advise using routes 119 and 100. Unfortunately, there is no subway or train connection to the city.
