Metro

Bicycles (a maximum of two bicycles on each platform) can be transported in the metro on each of the first and the last platforms of the individual carriages with the exception of the train’s first platform. Permissible or forbidden boarding is labelled on each door of the train using the following pictograms:

Transporting bicycles is free of charge.

For transporting bicycles it is possible to make use of specific lifts in metro stations. These lifts are indicated by a blue pictogram of a bicycle (see the previews below). Currently, these lifts are located in the Anděl, Bořislavka, Černý Most, Háje, Chodov, Ládví, Letňany, Národní třída, Nemocnice Motol, Pankrác, Prosek, Roztyly, Skalka and Střížkov metro stations.

Tips for placing bicycles in metro carriages

  • In all train carriages on the right side of specified platforms; pay attention in intermediate points with side platforms (i.e. Hlavní nádraží, Prosek, Rajská zahrada, Střížkov, Vyšehrad).
  • In the last car of the train it is also possible to place a bicycle along the end wall of the last platform; the closer to the right side of the car the better.
  • On lines A and B both of the end carriages also have more space at the opposite end of the vehicle (where there is no driver's cab).

 

Neither the internal platforms (i.e. those alongside the 2nd and 3rd doors) of all the carriages nor the first platform of the entire train are intended for transporting bicycles. Their purpose is to facilitate the movement of other passengers along the carriage or any emergency entry of the driver into the passenger compartment.
