From 11 September, front doors on Prague buses and trams will remain closed to create a safe distance for drivers.
Trams and buses will stop at all stops without exception. As for on-demand (na znamení) stops, passengers do not need to press the button; air-conditioning and air circulation will not be used in buses and trams.
“In the rail transport network, unlike bus transport, this measure can be applied without any significant impact on the timetables, ” added DPP spokesperson.

An exception has been made for modern trams 14T and 15T. They will open the front door, as the driver’s cab is hermetically separated from the passenger compartment.
All passengers must have their noses and mouths covered before entering public transport premises and vehicles, and at all times throughout their journey.
These measures are being put in place to protect passengers and drivers, and to reduce the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19. They are valid until further notice.
