Maybe there have been other translations in the past that I missed, but I think this is one of the first time there's been a sentence asking politely for something. I'm surprised there's no secondary verb like 'hebben' 'nemen' or otherwise - but this is concise and it sounds good, so no complaints!

"Hebben" is implied, you could also say: "Mag ik een kaart van de metro hebben?" but people usually leave out hebben.
