Transportation Around the City
The Metro is the main mode of transportation in Prague. There are three lines that are color coordinated which make it very easy to use. They are Line A (green), Line B (yellow), and Line C (red).
The Metro runs from 5 a.m. to midnight and a subway comes about every two to three minutes.
For a more scenic route, take the tram. A tram comes about every eight to ten minutes. During one of your weekends in Prague, be sure to ride the tram called the Nostalgic Tram No. 91. It only runs on weekends and holidays, and it takes you through Prague’s beautiful and history-rich city center.
Buses are mostly used in the outskirts of Prague. A bus comes about every 10 to 20 minutes. A transportation pass is recommended since you will be staying for an extended time.
You can buy a month pass at any Metro station and it can be used on any of these modes of transportation.
