Alternatively, bus 200E, going from the same stop as the 100E, takes you to the end stop of metro line 3 (Kőbánya-Kispest) from where you can travel into the city centre. It runs roughly every 10 minutes and the whole journey (including the metro) will take just under 50 minutes. Tickets can be purchased from the machine next to the stop for 350 Huf for a single (you will also need another single ticket for the metro journey - see Public Transport section for more information about ticket options). After23.00, when the metro stops running, the 200E will take you to Határ út, where you can transfer to the night bus services to the city centre (914A). After 23.00 the 200E runs a more restricted service of between 3 and 1 bus per hour, depending on the time (the timetable can be found at (https://bkk.hu/apps/menetrend/pdf/2005/20180616/11.pdf).
There are train links to Budapest from almost all countries in East and Central Europe. Most of these go to Budapest Keleti station, on the Pest side of the city. From the south, trains may arrive at Budapest Déli station on the Buda side. All main stations are served by the Metro and so travelling onward is relatively straightforward (See Public Transport section for information on tickets).
Budapest has a good public transport system consisting of busses, trolley busses, trams, metro and rail, all of which can be used with pre-paid tickets or passes, purchased at all Metro stations and ticket machines near many bus stops in the city. Ticket machines can be set to English and can be used with both cash and bank cards. The machine accepts all Hungarian coins and, for smaller sums, bank notes of up to 2,000 Huf. For larger purchases notes up to 20,000 are accepted (though the machines can be fussy at times). Change is given. You can also buy single tickets from the bus driver at an extra cost.
Some buses require you to get on at the front of the bus to validate tickets or show passes to the driver. Others have occasional ticket inspection by inspectors wearing arm bands. Tickets are validated by using the punching machines as you get on the vehicle or enter the metro and are valid for one ride. If you change vehicle, you must validate another ticket, except on the Metro, where a single ticket will last the entire journey with changes allowed from one line to another at the stations where they meet. If you exit the system, you will need to validate another ticket to get back in.
Single tickets can be purchased separately (350 Huf) or in lots of 10 (3000 Huf). There are also 24 hour, 72 hour and 7 day travel cards (1,650, 4,150 and 4,950 Huf respectively). These only need to be shown to drivers or inspectors and don’t require validation.
The Budapest transport company (BKV) has a very informative web site which contains all transport timetables and a useful rout planner, which can be found at:
