The City of Prague will not raise the fee for the annual transport pass from the current 3,650 crowns. The decision is to be confirmed by Prague councilors on Tuesday. The city’s transport authority lowered the price of the annual coupon in 2015 from 4750 crowns – since, the number of those paying for yearly passes has grown.
The math is easy: just 10 crowns per day per year, which many consider good value, as the pass is usable not only for the metro but all of the city’s trams and buses.
The move was aimed at encouraging residents to use Prague´s buses, trams and metro trains rather than drive into the center.
Revenues from the card last year amounted to 2.21 billion crowns and 2.2 the year before.
