It is not accepted on night trams or the funicular railway. On the metro it is valid for five stations, with changes for a journey not exceeding 30 minutes. For longer journeys you can buy a 32 CZK transfer ticket which is valid for any number of journeys taken with 90 minutes of being validated. Tickets purchased from the driver are more expensive.
