The construction of the new metro section C from Letňany to Čakovice would take 12 years and costs 16 billion crowns. Three more stations would be created. 

The first station can be Letňany Sídliště, built along Tupolevova Street, at a depth of 11.4 meters, followed by Nové Letňany near Veselská Street, while the final one in Čakovice will be built at a depth of 28.6 meters.

The C line extension to Čakovice spur to the housing projects would help to better connect residents of those areas with the city center.

Prague Deputy Mayor Petr Dolínek (ČSSD) said that the city also wants to explore extending the metro A, with four new metro stations: Bílá Hora, Dědina, Dlouhá Míle, Staré Letiště, and Václav Havel Airport.

Metro D construction should start in 2019 and will connect the center with city's south. The entire line, including a section from Pankrác to Náměstí Míru, should cost some Kč 50 billion.

The Prague metro began operation in 1974 and now has three lines with 61 stations. It has a transit network 65.2 kilometers long.
