City transport in Prague (metro, trams, buses) use the same system of tickets like buses to Ondrejov (383, 393, 490) and these tickets are also valid in a train between Praha and Strančice. Basic price of the ticket in Prague is 26 Kč (CZK).
Most convenient way:
Buy a ticket for 44 Kč in a ticket machine (no other possibility and ticket machines accept only coins). Machines are also at the bus stop at the airport. Stamp the ticket (important!) in a yellow machine in a bus, tram, at the entrance to the underground or somewhere at the train station (you can not stamp it in a train).
Less convenient way:
If you fail to find a ticket for 44 Kč, use the standard ticket for 26 Kč. You can also buy this ticket at the bus driver, but for 30 Kč. After you enter the bus 383 or 393, show this ticket to the driver, say "Ondřejov" (or better write it on a paper and show it to the driver - Czech pronounciation is sometimes tricky) and you will pay for the rest of the trip, which may be 20 or 32 Kč depending how the driver understands you.


Use taxi only on your risk. Reputation of taxi drivers serving the airport is not good and some of them try to ask for more than the price should be. But you may be lucky.

How to reach Ondřejov by car: Ondřejov is very close to the highway D1, exit 21 (Mirošovice) or exit 29 (Hvězdonice).
