Seniors aged 65+ can verify their right to receive the free age-based fare/tariff through any form of ID card or a passport.

For children ages 10 to 15 (through the day preceding their 15th birthday), there is an age-verification requirement by any ID card issued by a school, another carrier outside of the PID system, or a card issued by the state administration or another legal entity (verified by a stamp or other significant symbols of the issuer) – for example, a plasticized photo ID issued by a legal entity giving the child's first and last name and date of birth.

Prague public transport tickets can be used on any public transportation and allow for transfers between lines (subway to subway, tram to tram, etc.) and transfers between different types of transport (subway to tram, tram to a bus, etc.).

Do not forget to validate the ticket at the entrance to the metro station or on the tram/bus.


Where to buy

Ticket vending machines
Ticket vending machines are installed at all metro stations, and selected surface transit stops. For traveling within Prague, choose a ticket for 30, 40, or 120 CZK. By pressing the button repeatedly, you can buy more tickets at once. If you want to buy a discounted ticket or a ticket for luggage or a dog, press the DISCOUNTED button before making your selection. When you are finished, insert the correct amount of money, take your tickets, and change.

The vending machines accept only coins, not banknotes. However, vending machines in some busy places (e.g., Airport, Main train stations) accept cards.

Newsstands and retailers
Some shops, especially newspaper shops, offer tickets for Prague public transport. 

You can also buy tickets by using your mobile phone and sending a text message to the number 90206 with text: 

"DPT31" (for 30 minutes ticket)
"DPT42" (for 90 minutes ticket)
"DPT120" (for 24 hours ticket)
"DPT330" (for 72 hours ticket)

You will usually receive your ticket on your phone within one minute. You must have received your ticket before entering the vehicle or the paid zone on the metro.

Mobile application “PID Lítačka”
The mobile app "PID Lítačka" is available for download on Google Play and Apple Store. It offers all tickets for Prague public transport. You can even search your connection in the app, and the application suggests the most suitable ticket.

You can pay for the ticket using your credit/debit card, Masterpass or Apple Pay. However, before you use the ticket, you need to activate it in the application (it can be done automatically after the purchase or manually later). The validity of the ticket starts two minutes after the validation, so remember to activate the ticket in advance.

All trams have a ticket machine that accepts contactless credit/debit cards for payment placed in the middle of every tram vehicle. Passenger is obliged to buy the ticket immediately after getting on the tram. The ticket from the ticket machine is valid immediately and no longer needs validation.
