Public transportation is well organized and extensive. Prague integrated transport consists of public transport services in Prague (Metro - lines A, B, C, trams, funicular to Petřín, city buses), suburban bus service (lines of series 300 and 400) and railway service (only 2nd class passenger and fast trains and selected express trains - specified in timetables of the Czech Railways) in Prague and suburban regions.
Passengers may travel by means of public transport with a valid ticket only. Tickets must be obtained before entering a surface transport vehicle or the compulsory ticket area of Metro or funicular to Petřín.The ticket is valid only if validated in the validating machine or supported by a relevant coupon issued by the operator and with all required and permanently legible data completed.
Ticket validity can be inspected any time during a trip or a stay within the compulsory ticket area by ticket inspectors of Prague Public Transit Co. Inc. The relevant ticket inspector shall issue a pay receipt or an acknowledgement confirming the withdrawal of a season ticket.
Tickets are sold at Metro stations, newsagents, Travel Information Centres, hotels, travel agencies, department stores etc. They are also available from a number of ticket vending machines installed next to surface transport stops, at Metro stations, funicular stations and their immediate vicinity.
For more frequent journeys it is advisable to use long-term tickets,single tickets are more suitable for occasional journeys. Season tickets valid for 1, 3 and 5 days are the most suitable tourist option. Ticket vending machines issue only single tickets valid up to 24 hours.
