Last week, Prague’s public transportation company DPP announced that the toilet facilities throughout the city’s metro system would be undergoing an extensive renovation. 

In all, 25 toilets a various metro stations in the city will be refurbished, about half of them on the yellow B line.

You can already check out the new-look toilets: three facilities at Můstek were recently renovated along with other improvements at the location (the central Prague station is now also wheelchair-friendly).

The total cost of the renovation is estimated to come to 173 million crowns, reported

But that bill won’t entirely be footed by DPP.

The company plans to raise the price of using the metro toilets for patrons, who currently pay 5 CZK for the privilege. That will double to 10 CZK, according to a DPP spokesperson.

While the toilet facilities throughout Prague’s metro are set to become less of an embarrassment for the city, it remains to be seen how many will be able to afford to use them.
