Getting Around Budapest

Transport in Budapest is affordable and convenient, but you can make life a little easier by following a few tips. 

  • Validate and keep your ticket. If you are not using a pass, make sure you validate the ticket and keep it on you at all times. Sometimes plain clothes inspectors get on the tram or bus to check at random, and it’s also possible inspectors check tickets as you leave the metro. Getting caught without a valid ticket means a hefty fine and an unpleasant encounter that ruins your trip. 
  • Don’t travel at rush hour. The tram, metro, and bus buses can get pretty packed between 8 and 9 a.m., and between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Try to avoid traveling during those times if possible.
  • Keep an eye on your belongings. Budapest is generally a safe city, but like any capital, you have a risk of pickpockets. It’s possible to put your phone in your pocket for 30 seconds only to find it gone when you reach back in. 
  • Download the BKK App. The BKK Futár app will tell you when all modes of transport run to real time, and it can make it so much easier to plan your trip. 
  • Use Bolt if you need a taxi. Bolt is so easy to use, especially if you’re worried about the language barrier or getting taken advantage of. You can see your route in live time, get fare estimates, and see where your driver is while you wait.
