Turnstiles not to return to Prague metro system

The Prague Public Transport Company has dropped a proposed plan to reintroduce turnstiles to the city’s underground rail system. The company’s freshly appointed director, Jaroslav Ďuriš, said it could not afford such a system at present. Turnstiles were removed from the city’s metro stations in the mid 1980s. The cash-strapped transport authority is currently looking at various ways to make savings, including pay freezes.
