What is MKA
Małopolska Metropolitan Card (MKA) is a modern transportation management system implemented by the Małopolskie Voivodeship as part of the Małopolska Regional Operational Programme for the years 2007-2013. It is dedicated to the residents of the region and tourists who visit the Małopolskie Voivodeship in large numbers.
The Małopolska Metropolitan Card is a modern solution that integrates services related to public transportation in the region into a single coherent and user-friendly system. The authorities of Krakow and Tarnow, transportation organizers, and carriers operating in the region were invited to participate in the project. Together, we identified our needs related to public transportation and, based on the Małopolskie Voivodeship's Szybka Kolej Aglomeracyjna, we created the integrated communication system, the Małopolska Metropolitan Card.
The Małopolska Metropolitan Card provides modern access to transportation services in our region. We have created a system that integrates the existing systems of the Krakow City Card and Tarnow City Card with the services provided by Koleje Małopolskie and Przewozy Regionalne. As a result, by becoming a user of the MKA system, you gain access to most of the services related to public transportation in the Małopolskie Voivodeship.
Together with the MKA system partners, we have created integrated tariffs dedicated to those who use railway transportation and public transportation in Krakow or Tarnow. With the integrated tariffs, you pay less for services and participate in our loyalty program. We also want you to join us in implementing the idea of sustainable transportation. In Tarnow, we have built a Park&Ride parking system for you, offering a safe place to leave your car, as well as your bike or motorcycle.
The Małopolska Metropolitan Card is a fully personalized and secure medium on which you can store transportation services available in the MKA system. The MKA card is the most modern and secure solution currently available on the market.
In the MKA system, the card is called a physical medium, and we have taken care to ensure that it has its own acceptance infrastructure in the form of MKA machines. The machines are located in the vicinity of railway stations on the Szybka Kolej Aglomeracyjna routes, at bus stops and loops in Krakow, in the center of Wieliczka, in the center of Tarnow, and in the Tarnow parking lot. In addition, thanks to the integration of the MKA system with existing systems, our card is accepted in Krakow in over 100 Krakow City Card machines, as well as in Tarnow in information kiosks. We also provide card support during checks on trains and public transportation in Krakow and Tarnow.
Remember that by using the MKA card in Krakow, you can use the Krakow Park&Ride parking system for free
