Praha driverless metro design contract
10 Aug 2016



CZECH REPUBLIC: Metroprojekt has been awarded a KC440m contract to prepare a design study for the future driverless metro Line D in Praha.

The 10·6 km line with 10 stations would run from Náměstí Míru in the city centre to the southern suburb of Písnice via Pankrác and Krč. It is intended to relieve the congested Line C, and would run parallel to it for part of its route. Interchanges would be provided at Náměstí Míru with Line A and at Pankrác with Line C

Since the end of August Prague has increased tram system capacity by 4.5 percent.
Quote:
From 28th of August 2016, after public discussions and comments, permanent changes to the tram network will be applied in order to strenghten the tram network.
Three new lines will start operation, nine tram lines will be permanently re-routed and twelve lines will keep their current route.

I always enjoy your posts, dimlys, and great photos! I just moved away from Prague recently, and miss the trams dearly already.

There are no trolleybuses in Prague. This is a EV Bus charging its battery using special bi catenary during a break. It rides without the pantograph up. The special charging catenary uses the electricity from the tram network.

I've never seen this kind of bus before. An electric bus that uses the electricity from the tram network to recharge its battery is very smart!

That is a smart cheap solution if the terminus is next to tram tracks. You have 600 V DC there and you dont need any power electornics, controlers etc.
On a terminus next to a metro station something similar would be possible, but you have to connect to the underground DC supply which is 750V DC. The chrager in the bus must than handle the differnet voltage, but you still dont need to build any power electornics on site.

I think that isn't a problem. In Prague the tram network is very extensive!

We could have met there Since my last visit (1994) there was much to see in metro and tram-network. I was surprised, that the metro A terminus at Motol-hospital still attracts many passengers as it seems they concentrated many bus-services there. But really, if they would have decided to build urban-rail to the airport they should have done. But they decided for metro, build the first step and now they change back for urbanrail. I suppose that it would be more exensive to start urbanrail from airport to main-station than to finish metro to the airport. The last stretch from Motol to airport requires a total new alignment doesn´t matter if it is metro or urban-rail, strange as it is if it comes to politics.

Anyway one of the best public-transit systems in Europe

Was in Prague several years ago and rode the tram to the Castle and the funicular down from Petrin hill. Kudos to the city of prague and the public transit system which has to be one of the best in the world. And a return visit is a must.

Yes I agree with you that Prague is a super nice city to visit and the well developed transit system makes it easy to travel around the city. I was there several years ago and rode the tram and also caught the train out at the main train station. I want to go back also!
