"Getting into Prague is fairly..." Prague Transportation Tip by kenbac

Prague Transportation: 716 reviews and 706 photos

Getting into Prague is fairly easy. You can take a No 119, which stops in front of main Airport hall. Goes every 8-10 minutes and takes 20 minutes to get to last stop, which is Dejvicka. Then get Metro (using same ticket) to desired station, depending on location of Hotel. Get your tickets from the newsstands or the automatic machine at the bus stop in the Airport.
Or you can get a taxi They can be expensive. Will not be less than 560Kc (14 Ir).
I understand you might be subjected to a rip off and could end up paying much more.
I got a taxi and was charged 550 Kc, which was what I expected. I also booked the taxi back to the Airport a week later which was handy and he arrived on time, at our apartment door and charged the same.
Getting around Prague is hhvery easy. There is an excellent publics transport system consisting of trams, buses and a Metro with 3 lines. Fares are cheap and you use the same ticket regardless of the method being used. You must validate your ticket when boarding. A ticket for a short (max. 15 mins) journey is 8 Kc (0.20 Ir) or for up to an hour is 12 Kc (0.30 Ir), but this ticket is good for 1 hours at weekends or in the evening. If you wish you could get various passes. ? 1 day @ 70 Kc (1.75 Ir) ? 3 day @ 200 Kc (5.00 Ir) ? 1 Week @250 Kc (6.25 Ir). Now there?s good value. You can get single tickets from News-stands or vending machines. Get your pass at the ticket office in Narodni trida. There is a picture of the various passes available on the window, with English explanations, so you just point to the one you want. Isn?t that great.
