You must validate (punch) your purchased ticket before descending the metro escalators or upon entering a tram or bus by inserting it into a machine.  The machine will stamp your ticket with the date and the time of the start of your trip.  If someone identifies himself as an inspector and you do not have a validated ticket, you will be subject to a fine on the spot.  The Embassy does not provide legal advice or recommendations regarding issues with Prague Transport.  For more information:
