Useful information of the city of Budapest
The net of public transportation of the capital is made by lines of bus, trolley bus, streetcar, subway (M1 yellow line, M2 red line, M3 blue line) and trains of local (HÉV) interest. Buses, Streetcars and Trolley buses circulate from 4,30am to 11,00pm. The three metropolitan lines cross each other in Deák square. Streetcars and Buses follow every 2-15 minutes. Local trains (HÉV) bring the passengers on the island of Csepel, to Ráckeve, in the southern part of the city, and also to Szentendre and Gödöllö. Tickets can be purchased inside the subway stations, from the automatic distributors, or from the newsvendors. Tickets are valid for the whole run on the bus, trolley bus, subway, streetcar, gear train and on the HÉV, but only within the administrative borders of Budapest.
5 different types of tickets exist: 1) the combined one 2) the daily one, 3) the touristic one valid for 3 days, 4) the pack of ten and finally 5) the pack of twenty. We suggest to always choose the most convenient solution:(information: www.bkv.hu). The inspectors, with a band bracelet and carrying a photo, can ask for the ticket on the train or at the subways' exits.
