Residents and tourists should take heed of the upcoming mass disruption to Prague’s tram network in the city center. Several reroutes lasting two months will occur. From the morning of Monday, April 29, the Prague Public Transport Company (DPP) will reconstruct a central part of the tram network, affecting over 20 public transport lines, including trams and buses.

DPP will undertake maintenance work on the tram line between the Dlážděná and Havlíčková streets in Prague 1. The transport company says that the center and northeast of Prague will be affected. The end date of the disruption is June 29.

Daytime tram lines 1, 3, 6, 7, 12, 14, 15, 24, 25, 26, and 27, as well as night lines 91, 92, 94, and 96, and bus lines 207, 905, 907, 908, 909, and 911 will all be impacted due to diversions. The route of historic tram line 42 will also be modified.

DPP will also set up four new, temporary tram lines to help ease the disruption: lines 30, 31, 34, and 90.
