Public transportation

The public transportation network in Budapest is well developed, and will bring you almost wherever you want to. The same tickets are to be used everywhere, and if you buy one day tickets, three day tickets or similar you can use them on all the vehicles in Budapest. You can also buy a tourist card which will give you free use of the public transportation, free or discounted entry to 60 museums and to several sights, reduced price tickets for cultural and folklore programmes, discounts in restaurants and spas and some other advantages as well. This is only recommended if you plan to visit lots of museums and tourist places.

Inside Budapest you can buy:
– 24-hour ticket 1650 Ft
– Three day ticket 4150 Ft
– One week card 4950 Ft
– Two week card (you need passphoto) 7000 Ft

With the travel cards/passes you can travel unlimited with trams, buses and with the metro inside Budapest. You can also buy single tickets (350 Forint), but it is easy to do some mistake with them, and the controllers like to catch tourists, so be careful in that case.
