Public Transport in Budapest

Budapest – Local Public Transport


Public transportation in Budapest is excellent. Budapest and its environs are well serviced by a network of buses, trams, trolleys, and subway lines. Tickets have to be bought before boarding. They are available at Underground stations, tobacconists and newsagents, and from vending machines at many bus and tram stops in the city centre.

They are valid for one single journey of any length inside the metropolitan boundary of Budapest. Special tickets can be purchased that allow a change of route, and that cover the HÉV outside Budapest. Monthly and yearly passes are available at major metro stations and can be used for all forms of public transportation.
