Prague mayor rules out major jump in annual travel pass price

The mayor of Prague, Zdeněk Hřib, says the city’s authorities are not planning a major increase in the price of a yearly pass for the city’s public transport system. It had been reported that a one-year pass would cost CZK 5,500 next year, up from the current CZK 3,650. Mr. Hřib told Czech Radio this had been an “extreme” possibility considered with a view to boosting the Prague transport authority’s revenues.

However, it is not now on the table and instead councilors are considering raising the price of an annual pass by just CZK 365, meaning by one crown a day, he said.
