Airport Express Bus

Does this work differently from the "regular" transit system? In the RickSteves guide, it says to pay the driver. But I've read many warnings about needing to validate your tickets, or risk being fined. Does one still board the AE bus to central Prague from the airport, and just pay the driver? No validation required? Exact change required?

yes it is run by the train company,pay the driver it was 60kc last time I used it.no need for exact monry but don't try and use large notes as the driver will be unable to change them.
there has been a few changes to the schedule and stops recently so check that it is suitable for you.

the Prague public transport system is totally different and you must buy tickets before going on buses trams and metro, you must validate tickets when you get on buses or trams and before you enter the metro area.
