Prague Historical Trams Plan to Launch New Season in Late March

Last year, visitors to Prague could take a ride on historical trams on line number 41, and since July also on circular lines 42 and 43 for the first time.

During the entire period of operation, they were used by a total of almost 40,000 passengers, two-thirds of which were domestic tourists.

Historical tram line 42, which is jointly operated by the municipal companies Dopravní podnik hl.m. Prague (DPP) and Prague City Tourism (PCT) will again take to the streets of Prague on Saturday, March 26, 2022. From the same date, the historical line 41 will also be in operation.

Circular historical tram line number 42 will be in operation on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays at the beginning of the season. Services will depart at 40-minute intervals from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The route of the line will be the same as last year, from the Dlabačov stop it will lead past the main sights such as Prague Castle, Royal Summer Palace, Malostranská, around Josefov, Republic Square and Wenceslas Square, from where it will return to Dlabačov via Národní třída and Újezd. The fare of CZK 200 will remain the same. The ticket will be valid for 24 hours after validating.

Visitors to Prague can therefore use the historical line 42 not only for a ride across the center in interesting historical trams but also as a link to the largest tourist attractions on the hop-on, hop-off principle.

Until 26 March 2022, the historical line 42 will not be in operation mainly due to the unfavorable epidemiological situation and the expected decrease in travel due to the new omicron variant.

DPP plans to launch operation on the historical circular tram line41 from 26 March 2022, if the epidemic situation allows. Its route and range of operation will be almost identical to last year’s line. 43.

Line 41 will depart from Vozovna Střešovice (Střešovice depot) on Saturdays, Sundays and on public holidays at hourly intervals between 10:00 and 17:00. Connections will run along the route in the direction of Brusnice, Prague Castle, Royal Summer Palace, Sparta, Letenské náměstí (square), Strossmayerovo náměstí, Prague Planetarium, and back via Strossmayerovo náměstí, along nábřeží (riverbank) Kapitána Jaroše and Edvarda Beneše, via Malostranská and Prague Castle to Vozovna Střešovice.

The line will connect two cooperating museums – the Museum of Public Transport and the National Technical Museum.

The historical tram line 41 was in operation last year from 17 April to 30 June on weekends and holidays. DPP dispatched two-carriage trains on them, 7 connections in operation in each direction every day. In total, it carried 3,513 passengers.
