Prague City Transport Fares
Travelling by city transport is only possible with a valid ticket. Passengers have to obtain their tickets before boarding the vehicle or entering the metro system. The ticket is valid only if marked in the validation appliance. Tickets can be bought at selected Metro stations or in Dopravni podnik Information Centers, hotels, at news stands, travel bureaus, department stores, etc. Single tickets can also be bought from the slot machines located at Metro stations or near some stops of surface transport.

Ticket Inspection
The validity of tickets can be checked by the ticket inspectors of Dopravní podnik at any time during travel or stay in the metro system. The ticket inspector is entitled to ask the passenger to produce his or her valid ticket, to confiscate invalid tickets, and to collect a penalty (800 Kč, if paid at once 400 Kč) in case of travel without a valid ticket. In case of unpaid freight the inspector collects a penalty 50 Kč. To prove their identity, inspectors produce yellow-and-red badges. They issue receipts for the penalty amounts. | Contact us
