The Association of European Metropolitan Transport Authorities was created in 1998. It is a network of 29 European public transport authorities.
EMTA is a non-profit seeking association. Its purpose is to form a venue for meetings and exchange of information, research and experience between public transport Authorities of the main European cities. The emphasis is put on the technical character of the exchange and on a multimodal approach, covering aspects of an institutional, organisational, financial, technical and environmental nature, including transport policies and integration of transport systems into the city. EMTA performs studies on subjects jointly requested by its members. EMTA may make recommendations and requests and take initiatives with regard to European and international institutions, particularly in research and development fields. It may also participate in international events on behalf of its Members.
Each year EMTA publishes a Barometer presenting the popularity of public transport in member cities as well as the trends in urban mobility.
650 EURO in 2019 (only a partial membership fee was due for Krakow as it became a full member of the organization by the end of 2019).
