Klidně bych si dokázal představit prodloužení tramvají až na Strahovský stadion.

Are plans for the Prague metro trains to be open-gangway?

Not in near future (ten years). On line D, there will be probably new rolling stock.

What are the latest plans for line D? Will it merge with line C at Pankrác, or will new tunnels be drilled all the way to Hlavní nádraží? I did a search about line D, but it seems officials regularly change their mind.

Line D should end on Pankrác, for now. The proposal if for extension to Namesti Miru with separate tunnels. AFAIK the merge with line C was discussed but not approved. It would be cheaper now, but very expensive in the future, the rolling stock would have to be compatible etc. And C line beyond Pankrác is still very full, so the capacity of the line is needed.

Praha plans driverless metro line
05 Aug 2015



CZECH REPUBLIC: Praha city council has announced plans to build the future metro Line D for operation with three-car driverless trainsets.

The 10·6 km line with 10 stations would run south from Náměstí Míruto, splitting into to two branches terminating at Modřany and Depo Písnice. It is intended to relieve the congested Line C, and would have interchanges at Náměstí Míru with Line A and Pankrác with Line C

Prague airport rail link plan finalised
Thursday, August 06, 2015





FOLLOWING a study by Czech rail infrastructure manager SŽDC, the Czech Ministry of Transport has selected a preferred option for a rail link between Prague city centre, Vaclav Havel International Airport, and the town of Kladno to the northwest of the capital

The project will involve upgrading and electrifying the existing line from Prague Bubny to Hostivice and Kladno, with the construction of a double-track branch serving the airport, which will diverge from the existing line near Ruzyně station. This will enable the operation of up to six trains per hour at peak times between Masarykovo station in the city centre and Vaclav Havel with a journey time of 27 minutes

Finally it's happening. I mean, though maintenance will surely have happened in the meantime, isn't it so that most of the infrastructure on the Kladno line still goes back to its inauguration 150 years ago?

Prague has got its first modified Škoda 15T tram. The vehicle is now fully air-conditioned, got wifi connection, new plastic seats, improved brakes (to reduce noise) and got a slight facelift at the front. Škoda will deliver 125 of these upgraded trams as a second part of the initial order for 250 15T trams.

At the picture, the front is still wrapped with plastic after the transport to the depot, but you can see that the tram has got also a new color scheme.

With a small variation

I always preferred the Riga nose so it's an improvement. Now all it needs is the nice Riga colour scheme! Or at least return to traditional Prague colours.

Prague has celebrated 140th anniversary of its public transportation system by this impressive "tramwaycade" of both historical and contemporary vehicles:

You can watch "greasing" tram running though Prague online, now with Christmas tree . It's running all day long every day though the whole tram network and people are waving into camera, since the tram is quite striking and everyone recognize it.

Not at all, unfortunately. It totally skips Holešovice, Hostivař, Petřiny, Kobylisy, Křížovnická street with the tunnel through the house, etc, etc

Pragoimex low-floor tram on test in Prague

The unidirectional EV01 is just 15.1m long but has three sets of double-leaf doors and one single-leaf door on one side the vehicle. The tram accommodates up to 110 passengers, 30 of them seated
