Because the development of Prague metro started in the 1960s, not all of its stations are barrier-free. Due to the recent trend to enable people with restricted mobility to travel, stations that have started operating recently are equipped with a lift and barrier-free access. Regarding the older stations, they have been equipped with lifts if the technical conditions allow for it. To check the situation of barrier-free stations click on this map.
