Prague metro is the most used mean of transportation in the city of Prague. Daily, it transits about 1 million customers, which puts it as the seventh busiest metro system in Europe. To avoid paying a hefty fine for not having a ticket, it is advised to have one or to have a valid Lítačka card. So today, we will talk about how can we validate these card.
Validate them at the booths or in e-shop
If you have ever heard of “Opencardgate” you definitely know about its lengthy problems and the occasional inability to buy time coupons. Currently, it is mainly problem-free, so feel free to use it. You can do so by buying time coupons in the e-shop or at the nearest Prague metro booth.
Buying via e-shop and validating
Buying the coupons in e-shop is a little bit tricky in the sense, that there is one more step to be done. You have to visit a validator and insert a card. Then the coupon will upload to the card and validator will show you information about your purchased tariff and date of its expiration. In a couple of seconds, the system informs you, that the upload was successful and you can take your card and now, nothing is holding you from fully using the services of Prague mass transit.
Where to find the validators
They are most commonly found in the near vicinity of the ticket vending machines in every metro station. You can find the detailed list of all the metro stations below.
