Prague Airport Shuttle: The Cheapest Way to Get To the City Center from the Prague Airport

Traveling to a new country is very exciting, but at the same time, it can be stressful as you need to plan everything. From the moment you land, you need to find a way to get to the city. Stress can be even greater if you are a budget traveler, and every cent counts. That is why we have made this brief, but easy to follow guide on how to get from Prague Airport to the city’s center.

The cheapest way to get from Prague airport to the city center is with the help of the Prague Airport Shuttle. To be more precise, it is with the help of two shuttles: bus No.100 and bus No.119.

However, none of the buses will take you straight to the city center. Instead, they will take you to the metro station, and from there you need to take the metro. The metro runs through the city center and many other parts of the city. One way tickets cost €1.2 – that’s the same price for either of the buses.

What’s not the same for the airport buses is that they stop at different stations. The bus No. 100 goes to Zličín, that’s Yellow Metro Line B station. The bus No.119 goes to Nadrazi Veleslavin, Green Metro Line A. Bus No. 119 leaves every 15 minutes from the airport, while the No.100 bus not so often. Also, both busses start at 04:15 am and have their last tour at 11:30 pm. There is no bus line in-between. If you arrive in that period, you need to either wait for until the morning or grab a cab. Another thing to keep in mind is that the buses are often packed with people. That’s because it is the cheaper mean of transport.
