Prague metro

Prague metro

The metro network is the backbone of the entire public transit system, with 61 stations on three lines (A, B and C) with a total length of 65.2 km. In accordance with current trends to also make transit accessible to handicapped individuals, recently commissioned stations are equipped with elevators or barrier-free access. As at 31 December 2013, there were 730 wagons available, based out of three depots: Kačerov, Zličín and Hostivař. Prague’s metro uses two main types of wagons, usually connected into trains of five. Model M1 wagons are used on line C and are dispatched from Kačerov Depot. The second model used, on lines A and B, is 81-71M; these wagons are refurbished versions of older Soviet model 81-71 wagons.




Bus transport

As at the end of 2013, the Public Transit Co. provided 82% of urban bus transport and 10% of suburban bus transport in the Prague Integrated Transit (PIT) system (the remaining transport was provide by private operators).

The Public Transit Co. operated 148 bus lines along 829 km of roads. The total length of all lines was 1678.3 km. Of a total of 1255 buses, 830 vehicles are low-floor models. The Public Transit Co. has five bus garages: Klíčov, Vršovice, Kačerov, Hostivař and Řepy.

As the bus fleet is gradually modernized, the priority is on the purchase of low-floor buses to ensure accessibility for handicapped individuals. Another priority is reduction of emissions through the purchase of low-emission (EEV) motors or the testing of alternative systems of propulsion. To increase cost efficiency, the number of articulated vehicles on high-traffic lines is being increased, and midibus lines are being developed in locations with lower demand or restricted traffic capacity.
