- The first possibility is to pay fares in cash by putting coins in the box by the driver. Individual rides can be paid for in this manner. Riders over the age of 15 pay CZK 15 for transit in the 1st tariff zone, children between the ages of 6 and 15 pay CZK 11, and upon transferring to a different connection this fare must be paid again. In the 2nd tariff zone riders over the age of 15 pay CZK 12, while children between the ages of 6 and 15 pay CZK 8. In the event that both the 1st and 2nd tariff zones are used riders over the age of 15 pay CZK 27 and children between the ages of 6 and 15 pay CZK 19.
- Fares can also be paid using chip cards. In this case riders over the age of 15 pay CZK 14 for the first connection in the 1st tariff zone, CZK 11,20 in the 2nd tariff zone, CZK 25,20 for rides through both tariff zones, and only CZK 11,10 for the second connection in the 1st tariff zone and CZK 8,20 for the second connection in the 2nd tariff zone.

Transfers must be made within 30 minutes from the beginning of the ride. When a chip card is used for a two-zone ride this time limit for transfers is extended to 60 minutes and the second connection is free of charge. Chip cards can be purchased in advance at Benešové náměstí No. 5 (Beneš Square No. 5) in the centre of Teplice, on the north side of the square in the arcade by the public transportation stop.
