About 1000 people are caught daily riding Prague public transport without a ticket. The new scheme means these people will be able to pay the cheaper fine of 400 CZK, but there is a catch.

To take advantage of this option they will also have to buy the annual travel ticket which costs 3,650 CZK. The campaign will also feature posters and stickers that remind transport users to ride legally. It will also reward riding with a ticket, a sticker or button saying “I’m Honest!”.

The city is also considering the possibility of selling the annual pass on an instalment payment plan.
