Basic information

In this section, we're going to give you an overview of the most important fare discounts and tips that you can use when travelling within IDS JMK. In case of any questions, contact us at info@kordis-jmk.cz.

Season tickets for frequent journeys

Everyone can benefit from getting a season ticket. They're intended for people who travel with IDS JMK on a regular basis for work or school. They're profitable when making at least 3 return journeys per week. With a Brno-only student season ticket, they're profitable with 6 return journeys per month!

Season tickets are sold as monthly, quarterly and yearly. The longer they're valid, the more money you'll save. With a yearly ticket for 2 zones, you can save up to half of your fare money when compared to single tickets. Season tickets are usually person-bound — only the person that purchased the ticket can use it. Transferable tickets are somewhat expensive; anyone can use them. They're mostly used by companies to pay for their employees' journeys.

Owning a season ticket comes with these advantages:
  • Combining tickets. When travelling out of the zones you purchased your season ticket for, buy a ticket only for the extra zones. You won't have to pay for the same zones twice.
  • The owner of a yearly basic season ticket may travel with up to 4 other people, including max. 1 person over 15. Even if only 1 family member has purchased a yearly pass, the whole family would be able to go with them.
  • Owners of season tickets for zones 100 and 101 may transport a dog or a piece of luggage or a bike for free within these zones.

Season tickets may be bought for at least two neighboring zones. You can find their numbers in the network map. If you're travelling shorter distances, a segment or a two-segment ticket may be a better choice for you.

Season tickets may be bought in paper or electronically. In paper, they're for sale at our ticket offices. A photo ID (in color) is required, as well as an identification document and any proof of discount eligibility. A paper season ticket consists of two parts — the ticket ID that has your name, photo and birth date on it, and the coupon with your pre-paid zones and dates of validity. The owner needs to present both parts to ticket inspectors. The ticket ID may be used for a longer amount of time, depending on the age category of the passenger. The coupon is valid for either a month, 3 months or a year. Yearly coupons are being sold in 4 parts; the first day of the ticket's validity may be chosen by the owner. At train stations and DPMB ticket offices, card payment is accepted.

Electronic season tickets are usually connected to your bank card. Currently, they're only being sold for journeys within Brno (zones 100 and 101), but plans have been made to expand this system to all of IDS JMK. Purchase of these tickets is as simple as buying anything else via an eshop. You'll need to sign up, upload your current photo, type in the number of your card you want to connect the ticket to and then pay with said card. If you're not buying discounted tickets, no need to go to a normal store. If you are, follow the eshop's instructions.

Season tickets valid for a month or longer may be returned without giving a reason. See exact conditions in the Returning tickets section.

Tickets for 24 hours or several days may also be purchased. These tickets are suitable for tourists or other people with only a week's stay in Brno. See more information in the tourist section.

Multi-use tickets and POSEIDON for several journeys a week

Multi-use tickets ("univezální jízdenka") and the POSEIDON app is great for people that work 12-hour shifts, commute to work or school only several times a week or go on trips often.. With a multi-use ticket or the improved electronic version - phone app POSEIDON - fares will cost about 10 % less than with single tickets. POSEIDON and the multi-use ticket may be used for substituting most single tickets. You'll need to find out which ticket you'd need and then stamp the corresponding number of fields on the multi-use. Multi-use tickets are often called endless tickets — when you're nearing the end of the ticket, you can buy a new one and link both together.

Children, students and persons above 65 may use a reduced multi-use ticket. Somewhat different rules apply — it subtitutes both 'Reduced A' and 'Reduced B' fare tickets and can also be used as a segment ticket. See more information here.

Children under 6

  • Children under 6 may travel in all of IDS JMK for free, regardless of how many there are. However, a single accompanying person over 10 is required. No proof of age is required for children.
  • For children under 3, a season ticket for their accompanying persons may be bought. This ticket allows for free journeys of the accompanying person within Brno (zones 100 and 101) or Hodonín (Hodonín — Hodonín section). The ticket is issued mainly in paper, without a photo, valid until the child turns 3, along with a yearly renewable coupon. If more people take turns in accompanying the child, more season tickets may be purchased. To use the ticket, the child must be with you at all times; the ticket cannot be used for any journeys without the child.
  • The free season ticket for accompanying persons is suitable even for kids outside Brno that commute to Brno once in a while. Their accompaniment may use ticket combinations and will need to pay only for zones outside Brno.
