Budapest Transportation: 561 reviews and 600 photos

  BKV Trams
by janika

The best transportation in Budapest is the Subway. Modern and clean trains. Plus it's fast. Multilingual info at the stations including English. Also use buses and trams. They all operate under the same company called BKV. This means Budapesti Kozlekedesi Vallalat. You can get BKV tickets for about $100- Ft / $0.50 cents per ticket or you can purchase daily or weekly passes.

More info available on their web site.

AVOID taxies at all costs !!!

Type: Subway/Metro

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
