For the period of the suspension (from cca. 8:00 a.m. to cca. 8:00 p.m., on weekdays already from 6:30 a.m.), sufficient number of information clerks with reflective vests will be deployed at the closed stations of the underground as well as at the transfers points to the replacement bus service. 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.

From Wednesday, the 29th of June 2016, the upcoming suspension will also be announced in the underground stations. The announcements will continue during the suspension as well.

Approximately 60 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.
