Problems of the Metropolitan Areas institutionalization impede effective management of these areas in many aspects, including organization of public transport. The paper aims at the analysis and diagnose of the impact of the Municipal Transport Company in Łódź (MPK) on the formation of Łódz Metropolitan Area (ŁOM). In order to study this problem and make a diagnosis it is necessary to examine the spatial and demographic impact of the Łódź Transport Company (based on the issue of the transportation accessibility to bus’ and tram’s stops).The article presents also the analysis of the efficiency of Łódź Transport Company based on the frequency and transfer time of its vehicles. The research was based on the most objective – in the author’s opinion – methodology. The difficulty to select the appropriate method is related to the character of the Łódź Municipal Area settlement. Therefore, the results of the analyses are based on three ways of the delimitations of equidistant scope boundaries which can be recognized as the extent of the impact of the bus and trams connections. The studies aim to better identification of municipal transportation problems. Better understanding of these phenomenons will increase the application potential of similar studies. In terms of this paper and studies on the coherence of Łódź Metropolitan Area, the transport connections organized by the Łódź Municipal Transport Company can be regarded as ineffective and requiring very far–reaching improvements.
