Information measures:


With regard to the upcoming suspension of the underground operation on line A, the Prague Public Transit Company has prepared the following information measures for the passengers:

Several kinds of informational leaflets will be issued in a total number of approximately 25,000. The leaflets will be available in racks in the underground stations, as well as in the surface transport vehicles or in the informational showcases of the underground stations.

For the period of the suspension, daily (from cca. 8.30 a.m. to cca. 8.00 p.m.), approximately 12 information clerks with the reflective vests will be deployed in the area of the underground suspension and its vicinity. They will be ready to advise passengers on current public transport connections (not only in Czech, but also in English). The information clerks will also be equipped with the aforementioned informational leaflets for passengers.

Starting already on Monday, the 11th of April 2016, the informational leaflets with basic information on the upcoming suspension will be placed in racks in the underground stations and will be available for passengers during the suspension period as well. From Wednesday, the 13th of April 2016, the upcoming suspension will also be announced in the underground stations. The announcements will continue during the suspension as well.

Approximately 55 information boards with a schematic diagram and basic text information in Czech and English language will be arranged to provide the information related to the specific destination.
