What is MKA
Małopolska Agglomeration Card (MKA) is a modern transport management system dedicated both to the citizens of the region and numerous tourists visiting the Małopolskie Province. It has been created by the Małopolskie Province authorities as part of the Małopolska Regional Operating Program for 2007-2013.
Małopolska Agglomeration Card is a modern solution integrating the region’s services related to public transport into one coherent and user-friendly system.
We have invited the authorities of the cities of Krakow and Tarnow, transport organizers, and carriers operating in our region to participate in the project implementation. We have jointly determined our needs related to the public transport and, on the basis of the Fast Commuter Rail constructed by the Małopolskie Province, we have created a system for Małopolska Agglomeration Card – the means for your integrated transport.
Małopolska Agglomeration Card provides a modern access to the transport offering in our region. We have created a system integrating the existing Krakow City Card and Tarnow City Card with services offered by Koleje Małopolskie and Przewozy Regionalne railway companies. Under the resulting solution, you can become the user of MKA system and get access to most of the available services related to public transport in the Małopolskie Province.
Together with MKA system Partners, we have created integrated tariffs that are dedicated to persons using railway transport and city transport in Krakow and Tarnow.
Under the integrated tariffs you pay less for the services and you take part in our loyalty program. We also want you to help us introduce the concept of balanced transport. In Tarnow we have built a Park&Ride lot, offering you a secure space to leave your car, bike or motorcycle.
The Małopolska Agglomeration Card is a fully personalized medium that allows you to record transport services available in the MKA system. MKA card is the most modern and secure solution currently available on the market.
In the MKA system we say the card is the physical medium. We took care that the medium had its own acceptance infrastructure in the form of MKA machines. The machines are located near rail stops along the routes of the Fast Commuter Rail, in the Customer Service Point in Krakow, in the center of Tarnow, and on the parking lot in Tarnow. Additionally, due to integration of MKA system with the existing ones, our card is not only accepted in Krakow in more than 100 machines of the Krakow City Card, but also in info kiosks in Tarnow. We also provide support with handling your card during ticket inspection on trains and public transport in Krakow and Tarnow.
Remember that with the MKA card you can use the Krakow’s Park&Ride parking lot system for free and you can access the city bike rental system. In Tarnow, the MKA card is the medium for your e-wallet.
