KORDIS JMK

Basic information

KORDIS JMK is a stock company (Inc.) with a capital base of 2 000 000 CZK. Currently, it employs about 50 people and resides in Brno, Nové Sady 30.

The company was founded in March of 2002 by the South Moravian region as well as by the Statutory city of Brno as KORDIS JMK, LLC. — the coordinator of the Integrated transport system of the South Moravian region. The company was put in the trade register on September 20, 2002. Immediately after that, on October 1, 2002, it started operating. KORDIS was founded by a 1 000 000 CZK investment and was owned by the South Moravian region (51 %) and the Statutory city of Brno (49 %).

The company's headquarters

KORDIS JMK was founded for two main functions: coordinating transit services within the South Moravian region and preparations, execution and maintaining the integrated transport system within the entire area of the South Moravian region. After the integration of all parts of the region, the main task for KORDIS is the coordination of transport and other relevant services for the South Moravian region, city of Brno and other municipalities and cities within the region.

The reason for the founding of KORDIS JMK were the needs of the South Moravian region and the Statutory city of Brno regarding the fulfillment of development programs in the field of public transit. Within the region, the main points were the need for quality and profitable transit for the entire region, transporting as much passenger as possible, and the implementation of a central integrated transit system within the region. Within Brno, the aims were mainly to lower the amount of individual traffic caused mainly by people commuting by car from the metropolitan area into the city, connecting transit arriving from the region with Brno transit and improve the offer for travelling into the region.
