Transport on trams, buses and the metro system in Prague will be free of charge for all children up to the age of 10 from the start of July, the chairman of the board of the Prague Public Transport Company David Vodrážka told reporters on Tuesday. Currently public transport in the capital is only free for children to the age of 6. At the same time, paper tickets for older children and youths are being discontinued; they will have to use the Opencard system instead.
