Most international connections terminate in Prague at the Florenc station, located at Metro lines B and C, in Florenc. The main bus station serves all international and long distance domestic routes. From here, you can get to the city-centre by metro line B in about 5 minutes.
If you are travelling outside Prague, a bus might be quite a good option, as they are usually cheaper than travelling by train. Most services are operated by ČSAD and Student Agency.

If you’re staying in Prague then you probably won’t be using buses, unless you are staying in some obscure suburbs. Also buses are not allowed in the city centre as they produce noxious fumes and the streets are too narrow, so they transport people from the suburbs to tram and metro stops outside the centre. Tickets are available from all the usual agents (if you have change you can buy tickets directly from driver at extra charge).
Prague is well served by Bohemia Euroexpress International, Eurolines, GTS International, Student Agency, and Capital Express buses, all of which reach numerous EU destinations. Most international buses are equipped with cushier seats, magazines, and even entertainment and Wi-Fi internet. You can buy your tickets in advance, though most operators allow you also to purchase directly from the driver.
