Types and validity of tickets and passes

Single tickets are valid on the entire length of a bus or tram line, between two termini, for a single trip without changing. On starting the journey, i.e. immediately after getting on the vehicle, the ticket must be validated using the puncher device. The ticket must be kept until the end of the trip and presented on request to the inspector.
The termini where there is no separate area for getting on and off are to be considered as stops for fare purposes.
Ticket books contain 10 tickets. The book cannot be divided, but individual tickets may be torn out for punching. More than one people may use the ticket book at the same time. In this case one ticket must be validated for each passenger. Validated tickets must be kept until the current trip and the book itself until the end of the last trip, and both must be presented to the inspector on request. Ticket books are non-returnable.
Day passes are valid between 0 and 24 hours on the day specified on all scheduled services of MVK Zrt., for any number of journeys within the administrative boundary of the city.
Tourist tickets are valid from 0 hours on the starting day specified until 24 hours on the second or sixth day therefrom, on all scheduled services of MVK Zrt., for any number of journeys within the administrative boundary of the city. The 7-day tourist ticket is issued for a specific person and may not be used by others. The owner must write their name on it in ink prior to starting the first journey. The ticket must be presented to the inspector along with appropriate identification.
Weekend family tickets may be used from Saturday 0 hours until Sunday 24 hours on the specified weekend, on all scheduled services of MVK Zrt., for any number of journeys within the administrative boundary of the city. The ticket may be sued by one or two adults and up to three children no older than 14 years if they travel together. For children over 6 years of age, a valid Hungarian student ID card must be presented.
All month and year passes are valid from the first day of the calendar month or year specified until 24 hours on the 5th day of the month following the expiry. The 30-day passes can be bought on any day, and they allow travelling from 0.00 of the given day of the given month to 24.00 of the same day minus one day of the following month. (for example from 0.00 of the 10th of the given month to 24 00 of 9th of the following month.) They may only be used along with a form of ID, except for passes without a photo. Full-price passes may only be used with a general pass ID, and discounted student passes with a valid student ID with a photo, or with the photo ID issued by MVK Zrt. to under-18’s who participate in retraining; OAP passes must be used with the temporary or permanent pass ID issued by MVK Zrt.
For general pass ID’s, a 4 x 4 cm traditional or digital, black and white or colour passport photo is needed, taken in front of a light background and no more than 3 months before, and the personal ID card must be presented. The ticket vendor issuing the pass ID may reject the photo if due to a fault in the picture it cannot be used for identification or if it was taken a long time before.
The pass slip must be marked with the serial number of the pass ID or of the student ID before starting the first journey in ink or with a typewriter.
The single-line buss pass must be marked by the ticket vendor with the line number it is valid for. The single-line bus pass is only valid on the line specified, and may not be used on other lines that travel along the same route.
With effect from 1 July 2007, Miskolc Városi Közlekedési Zrt. makes it possible for those who are entitled to use local transport free of charge and the suburban line (Line 7 operated between Miskolc and Felsőzsolca by Miskolc Városi Közlekedési Zrt.) with a 90% discount to obtain a photo ID. It is not mandatory to obtain this ID card, but those who do may present it to the ticket inspectors of MVK Zrt. to verify their entitlement to the discount.
The following are entitled to the discount:
  • children who receive the higher family benefit, regardless of age,
  • people with severe disabilities as per Act XXVI of 1998
Those in receipt of the higher family benefit may verify their entitlement with the certificate issued by the Hungarian State Treasury (Magyar Államkincstár) (Annex 1).
According to Act XXVI of 1998, people with severe disabilities may verify their entitlement with the resolution issued by the Hungarian State Treasury (Annex 3).
Those entitled to the discount may register at the Customer Service Office of MVK Zrt. After the registration, they will receive a photo ID. The ID is prepared by marking the currently used temporary OAP pass ID with the letter F.
The following documents are needed for the registration:
  • the original of the certificate or resolution issued by the Hungarian State Treasury or the original of the certificate issued by the organisation disbursing the higher family benefit
  • one 4 x 4 cm passport photo not older than 3 months
  • personal ID card
ID issue charge: HUF 250
Plastic case for the pass: HUF 50
The ID is valid for maximum one year from the date of issuing or until the final date of disbursing the higher family benefit as shown on the certificate presented. The travelcard must be validated at a ticket vendor office before the expiry date. Entitlement has to be verified again for the validation.
If entitled person does not obtain the travelcard, they will be able to verify their entitlement by presenting the appropriate certificate, resolution or authority verification.
Monthly pass slips as well as day, tourist and weekend family tickets may be returned to the MKV Zrt. ticket vendors or the Customer Service Office prior to the start of their validity for the entire purchase price to be refunded save for an administration charge of HUF 250.
The person requesting the above returns must verify their identity with a photo ID (personal ID card, passport, driving licence). Students may also use their student ID’s.
The pass slips purchased by companies and other organisations for their employees may only be returned for 100 % of the purchase price if so requested in writing by the organisation in question. Such cases are handled by the Ticket and Pass Vendor Department or at the Customer Service Office.
If a private person asked for a VAT invoice when purchasing a pass slip, the pass slip may only be returned along with the VAT invoice.
Single tickets and ticket books may not be returned. The term of their validity is defined by the local government.
Year passes purchased at a discounted price may not be returned.
