How to reach the event

Passengers need a valid ticket to travel on the city public transport system. The ticket must be stamped as soon as you get on a bus or tram, or enter the transport area in Metro (subway) station. If you requested a ticket by SMS, you must have received your ticket before you enter the vehicle or the paid zone on the subway. You can find public city transport routes, ticket prices and timetables on www.dpp.cz.

The Prague public transport system uses two types of single-trip tickets:

30 min ticket 90 min ticket
Adults 24 CZK 32 CZK
Children 6 -15 years 12 CZK 16 CZK
Children under 6 free free

Both tickets can be used on any type of public transportation and allow transfers between lines (subway to subway, tram to tram etc.) and transfers between different types of transport (subway to tram, tram to bus etc.) for up to 30 or 90 minutes from validation.

You can buy tickets at yellow ticket vending machines (also in English, coins only), at ticket offices located at some metro stations, at a Tabák/Trafika, at some newsstands and at tourist information centres. You can also buy tickets by using your mobile phone (only with Czech mobile operator SIM card) and sending the text message "DPT24" or "DPT32" to the number 902 06. Your ticket will usually be sent to your phone within one minute. If you do not have or do not want to buy a SIM card of local operator, you can use "Sejf" Mobile application. If necessary, you can buy a 90-minute ticket directly from the driver for 40 CZK. More information can be found at https://pid.cz/en/where-to-buy-tickets/.
