The metro will run for the first time since November and after midnight, there are fewer passengers in July this year than last
The number of passengers in the metro is still well below the level of 2019.
For the first time since November, it will be possible to ride the Prague metro even after midnight. Dopravní podnik hl. m of Prague (DPP) as of today extends the operating hours of the subway to midnight. But there is still no return to the state before the pandemic. Until now, the subway has been running for about an hour less.
The extension was announced by the DPP in June as a reaction to the increase in the number of passengers, especially after 8 p.m. In June, the number of passengers grew year-on-year: in the whole month, the metro carried 19,048 million people, which is 2% more than a year ago. Compared to June 2019, this is a decrease of 35%.
In the year-on-year comparison, however, the number of passengers is declining: 6,852 million people traveled by metro in the first two weeks, almost 8% less than in the same period a year ago. Even worse is the comparison with the time before the covid: -38.5%. You can compare the complete development day by day here.
Whereas previously the traffic after midnight meant departures after midnight from the final, now from the city center. The last daily metro connections will leave the center of Prague between 00:02 and 00:08, depending on the line and station.
Departures of the last metro trains from the center from 15.7.
