Buses are an important part of the Prague Integrated Transport System and provide connection of the city centre with the adjacent outer zones. The picture shows a 18-metres long articulated bus, manufactured by a Czech producer SOR Libchavy, fleet no. 6736, in the interchange node at the Kobylisy underground station of line C, running the bus route No. 152 towards Čimice Suburb.
Tram lines together with the underground – metro are the backbone of the Prague transportation system. The picture shows three-section trams of type KT8N at the interchange node Hradčanská. The stops are provided with modern stop signs. At the background of the photo there is an indicator of a radio-controlled switch and a switch semaphore.
Due to its hilly terrain and narrow streets in its historical core, Prague is not an ideal city for cycling. Nevertheless, the length and number of cycling routes in Prague is growing and Prague citizens are learning to commute to work by means of bicycles and scooters. The photo shows a cyclist in the Prague traffic coming from Jirásek Bridge to Jirásek Square. At the background of the photo there is Prague Castle.
Metro is the backbone of the Prague mass public transport. Every day it transports on average 1.5 million passengers, while the total length of its three lines is 60 kilometres. The picture shows a platform of the metro station Kobylisy in the extended section of the C line, opened in 2004. The station was dug out as a single-aisle, along the whole platform, with moving-staircase tunnels from both ends of the platform.
Operation of the underground on the C line is provided by modern trains of type M1 manufactured in Prague by the consortium of ČKD Praha, ADtranz and Siemens. The picture, showing an approaching train, was taken from a footbridge at the underground station Střížkov, opened in 2008.
A tram train of type T6, running on the route 20 towards Barrandov. Portals for suspension of the overhead wires and lighting are typical of the whole Barrandov flyover. The T6 trains have been running in Prague since 1995.
The 3.2 kilometre long flyover of the tram track to Barrandov, opened in November 2003, is the longest tram uphill track in the Czech Republic. The track goes from Hlubočepy up beyond Růžička ravine. At the background of the picture are Barrandov Terraces – a functionalist building designed by the architect Max Urban.
