Even for someone directionally challenged like myself, the public transportation system in Prague is amazingly easy to follow. Below is some information that may help you navigate your way through this beautiful city.

  • There are three main methods of transportation here: buses, trams and the metro.
    • Buses & Trams
      • The buses and trams are clearly marked with their numbers and the various stops are frequent and easy to find.
    • The metro is the fastest method of travel in Prague
      • Fortunately there are only three lines to keep things simple:
        • A - Green
        • B - Yellow
        • C - Red
      • The lines intersect in the center of the city, so transfers are clear and stres-free.
      • The metro runs from 5am to midnight whereas some buses and trams run later.
  • If you use Google Maps it will tell you which bus/tram/metro you need to catch and at what time. The bus and tram signs at the stops also show the various stations and times at which you can catch the bus/tram.
