From June 2022 regional routes are integrated throughout the whole of the central Bohemian region
From 12 June 2022 the common integrated transport system of Prague and the Central Bohemian Region will cover the whole of the Central Bohemian Region. With the integration of the last two regions, all suburban regional bus lines have now been integrated into the Prague Integrated Transport (PID) system, which includes all train and bus routes, including public transport in Prague and in most towns in Central Bohemia. The PID system also extends into neighbouring regions, covers an area of 13 thousand square kilometres and serves more than 3 million inhabitants in almost 1 300 towns and villages.
After a series of integration projects that gradually expanded the PID system to the whole of the Central Bohemian Region, another 22 bus routes were added in June 2022. As of the same date the PID tariff was also extended to cover other towns and villages in nearby regions of the Czech Republic. The PID system currently offers 72 train and 485 regional bus routes, all public transport services in Prague and public transport in most towns in the Central Bohemian Region, with the exception of three, the integration of which is currently also being prepared.
The Central Bohemian Region and adjacent regions are divided into 13 tariff zones, in which a wide range of oneoff and long-term subscription tickets can be used. These can be purchased via the PID Lítačka mobile application, through the Lítačka e-shop or from sales points, including those in 11 towns in Central Bohemia. One-off tickets can also be purchased on trains and buses, in cash or by credit card.
The operation of the 36 carriers, who abide by uniform PID quality standards, is tracked 24 hours a day by coordination dispatching, which monitors the traffic situation, deals with extraordinary incidents and ensures continuity. Information about routes and news is available via a telephone helpline, while passengers can find all the information they need on the website www.pid.cz or on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Information about current timetables is accompanied by an on-line map showing the position of vehicles , as well as details of delays on any routes, and as this data is open source, those details are also incorporated into other third-party applications, including Google Maps. The PID system is organised by ROPID in Prague and IDSK in Central Bohemia.
