Transit tickets will be valid in more towns

The transit system is expanding to more of Central Bohemia

Tickets for Prague Integrated Transit (PID) will be valid in more places outside of the city, as new towns have been added. PID tickets will be valid on new bus lines as well as on rail lines to these Central Bohemian towns.

In January the system expanded into more parts of the Mělník district, and this weekend it will extend to the Nymburk district. Starting April 1 the tickets will be valid in parts of the Benešov district such as Neveklov, Týnec and Netvořice, and newly into the town of Benešov. Six new bus lines are being introduced and three others extended, replacing lines formerly run by Central Bohemia Integrated Transport. A rail line from Prague to Benešov and Prague to Nymburk is also included.

Three new bus lines and three extended lines will also integrate Nový Knín and Sedlčany.

Pavel Procházka, deputy director of Ropid for suburban transport, said that Ropid was opening a new chapter in the integration of long distance rail service. Ropid oversees Prague Integrated Transit.

Ropid spokesman Filip Drápal said that the intensive engagement of České dráhy trains into the transport around the city would optimize the entire transport service.

Prague and the Central Bohemia region estimate they will pay Kč 14 million to cover the difference between České dráhy fares and PID fares. In the future, privately operated trains could also fall under the umbrella of Prague Integrated Transit.
