"Ticket checks" Budapest Transportation Tip by McPee

Budapest Transportation: 566 reviews and 615 photos

Tour gide books say that you may be stopped to check your ticket as you leave Metro stations.

Sure enough on the first trip I was stopped. Having travelled in other Eastern European countries I have been asked for my passport etc. In Budapest the staff should wear a red arm band. Make sure your tickets are valid - especially for metro Transfers. Again a weekend card prevents you having to think about all of this.

Type: Subway/Metro
