From Wednesday, June 1, Metropolitan Tickets will be available for topping up in all ticket machines – fixed and mobile. This is a total of over 3.2 thousand devices.
From the beginning of June, Metropolitan Tickets will be available not only at Passenger Service Centres, but also in all ticket machines. Today there are 819 fixed ticket machines in Warsaw and in some towns of the agglomeration. Additionally, all Warsaw Public Transport buses and trams as well as Fast Urban Rail trains are equipped with mobile ticket machines - these are 2,439 devices. Thus, the inhabitants of the agglomeration will be able to buy Metropolitan Tickets in more than 3.2 thousand points.
The Metropolitan Ticket is an offer addressed to people living in communes which have signed a relevant agreement with the Municipal Transport Authority (MTA). On the basis of it, residents settling taxes in the place of residence pay less for long-term MTA tickets, and the difference is borne by the budget of their commune. For example, a 30-day ticket valid in the 1st and 2nd ticket zones (at the 3rd endowment threshold) costs 120, and not PLN 180. In the case of a 90-day ticket, they pay PLN 330, which is PLN 130 less than people who are not entitled to a Metropolitan Ticket.
Currently, the offer is used by residents of 26 communes of the Warsaw agglomeration. Last year they bought almost 202.5 thousand 30- and 90-day tickets for over PLN 28 million. Metropolitan Tickets constituted approx. 6.5 percent of all long-term tickets sold.
The Ticket Coding Points in Kobyłka, Legionowo, Otwock, Ożarów Mazowiecki, Piaseczno, Piastów, Sulejówek Miłosna and Wołomin will function unchanged.
