short term transit pass ?

Can you buy a few of the short term passes and then use them as needed?

I'd rather have them with me than need to stop and buy if I am out later in the evening.

I know that I can walk most places but just in case I am out somewhere farther away from our apt. at night and don't want to walk "home".

Thanks

You don't need a pass, just buy a few tickets (airport or tobacconist etc) 24 crown ones will almost always be enough. They become valid only when you use them (validate)

NO worries! Perhaps 2 at a time.

you will probably be able to get some at the hotel reception and their is a tobacconist on the main road at the tram stop opposite Narodni Trida Metro (it's a building site at the moment) and you can get tickets in there easily enough.

You can buy tickets at every metro station and some tram stations. On tram stations look for an, I belive, orange machine about the height of your waist. On metro stations look for the long queue :). Ask your hotel receptionist to point you to the nearest machine/kiosk. You can for example insert a 50 czk coin into the machine and buy 2 tickets, you don't have to pay for them separately. We only found out on the 3rd day....

I've been visiting Prague for ten years, and I have yet to see a ticket machine at a tram stop.

Prague does not give up her secrets easily.
