SkyCash MPK Tickets No Longer Valid From March 8th

As of March 8th, it will no longer be possible to buy mobile tickets for Wrocław's public transport using the SkyCash application.

As you may have already read on Wrocław Uncut, MPK Wrocław are launching a new ticketing system that will go live next Thursday. 

Unlike the current system, whereby paper tickets can be purchased onboard MPK's buses and trams, the new setup is completely paperless. 

Traditional paper tickets can still be used and they will still be available to buy in kiosks, shops and machines at public transport stops. However once you are on a bus or tram, purchasing an e-ticket is your only solution (bar trying to dodge the ticket inspector). 

In order to purchase an e-ticket, passengers will either need a contactless bank card or an NFC enabled phone. One other option is to get yourself MPK's new Urbancard EP, which can be topped up with credit for buying individual tickets onboard Wrocław's public transport vehicles.

Changes are also coming to mobile tickets. A special UrbanCard app, available for Android, IOS and Windows Phone, will replace the SkyCash app as the only place to purchase mobile tickets. The app includes a Jakdojade style travel planner and will be available to download on March 8th. 

Those fond of the SkyCash app will naturally be disappointed by the change. However, they may still be able to use it to purchase MPK tickets in the future. According to tuwroclaw.com, there are plans to make it possible for several different apps to sell mobile MPK tickets.
