Ticket Inspection

The validity of tickets can be checked by the ticket inspectors of Dopravní podnik (The Prague Public Transit Company) at any time during travel or while located in the Metro system. The ticket inspector is entitled to ask the passenger to produce his or her valid ticket, to confiscate invalid tickets, and to collect a fine (1500 CZK = approx. 59 €, if paid at once 1000 CZK= approx. 39.4 €) in case of travel without a valid ticket.
