Muzeum – Kačerov: temporary suspension of the underground service

Muzeum – Kačerov: temporary suspension of the underground service

Due to railway reconstruction, the underground service on line C will be suspended in the Muzeum – Kačerov section in both directions during two consecutive weekends: 22nd – 23rd of October 2016 and 28th – 30th of October 2016 (both times from the launch of the operation on Saturday, or Friday, to the end of the operation on Sunday).

A replacement bus service:

A replacement bus service line XC is established in daytime operation on the route Hlavní nádraží – Muzeum – I. P. Pavlova – Vyšehrad – Pražského povstání – Pankrác – Budějovická – Kačerov.

Changes to bus stops:

For lines no. 189 and 215, the Kačerov stop (in the direction to Nemocnice Krč) is relocated forwards, to the stop of line no. 106.

Barrier-free travelling

Due to missing barrier-free exit from the Kačerov station, we recommend using the following bus connections:

  • From the area of Jižní Město we recommend bus lines no. 135, 136, 170 and 213.
  • From the area of Spořilov we recommend bus lines no. 118 and 170.
  • From Nemocnice Krč we recommend bus line no. 193.

In the Hlavní nádraží station, persons with reduced mobility are (subject to previous agreement with driver) enabled to get off the buses of line XC at the boarding stop near the elevators leading to the railway station hall. Afterwards, line C of the underground can be used for subsequent transport in the direction to the Letňany terminal station.

Information measures

In connection with the upcoming suspensions of the underground line C in the Muzeum – Kačerov section, the Prague Public Transit Company prepared the following information measures for passengers.

Several kinds of informational leaflets will be issued. The leaflets will be available in the informational showcases of the underground stations as well as at the information clerks of the Prague Public Transit Company in the surroundings of the closed stations.

For the period of the suspension (from cca. 8:00 a.m. to cca. 10:00 p.m.), sufficient number of information clerks with reflective vests will be deployed at the closed stations of the underground and in their immediate surroundings, 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.

From Wednesday, the 19th of October 2016, as well as from Wednesday the 26th of October 2016, the upcoming suspension will also be announced in the underground stations. The announcements will continue during the suspension as well.

Approximately 65 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.


We apologise for any inconvenience that may have been caused to you and we thank you for your understanding.
