Can't we say Chtel jit tam, or tam must stay before jit?

I used "Chtěl jít tam" and it was wrong, so I guess there's a(nother) word order issue...

I have the same question as NinaOBel 6 months before. Is the word order fix and "tam" can't be at the end? In my mother tongue German the past participle must obligatory be at the end of a sentence. How is the word order in Czech?

Could "jet" be used in place of "jit"?

Yes, it can. You would then also say ', ale nejel' to match the mode of transportation in the second part of the sentence
