I bought a 3 day pass in Prague. On the back it says it's valid for zones P, 0, B. I have no idea where these zones are. On the internet, someone said it covers beyond the airport. But that doesn't mean transportation to the airport is covered. So is it? Can I get on the bus to the airport with this pass?

  • 'Read on the internet' where? Both the DPP (public transport) and Prague Airport websites have very clear and easy to find answers to your question. May 4 '18 at 14:59
  • On many locations, one of them the dpp, another is this livingprague.com/prague-transport/prague-public-transport, i still don't get it

  • @tor-einar-jarnbjo where on dbp does it state that these zones cover transit to the airport?

Generally, yes, you can take the bus from within Prague to the Václav Havel airport with the 3-day ticket. Though the special AE line is an exception, your ticket is not valid there.

DPP (the main transportation company in Prague) has a page about fares:

Zone P includes the metro, trams, Prague public transport buses (lines No‘s 100 – 299 and 901 – 915), the Petřín funicular, ferries and selected railway line sections.

Zone 0 includes buses from the periphery areas (lines No‘s 300 – 420 and 951 – 960) running through the Prague area, and selected railway line sections.

So, if you take a bus numbered from 100 to 299, you know for sure you are safe.

DPP's page about transport to the airport lists bus lines 100, 119 and 191.

For lines numbered from 300 to 420, according to this map, the airport (marked as "Letiště") lies within the "P, 0, B" zone, so you can use those lines too.

The one line you can't use is the special Airport Express (AE) line, which has special fare.

  • One question though, what's the difference between ae line and the others? Is it an Express bus?

    @Ayyash It's a special line that goes directly from the main railway station to the airport.
