    Buying a ticket

    You need a ticket or a pass to be able to use public

    transportation.

    It is important that you validate your ticket as soon

    as you get on board a vehicle.

    There are two different ways to validate your ticket.

    You can validate your tickets manually on buses

    and streetcars. These machines are red.

    Be sure to insert your ticket into the top slot and

    pull the lever towards you.

    Other ticket machines are orange.

    The orange ticket machines are electric.

    Insert your ticket into the slot and wait for the beep.

  • 27 Budapest

    The sound of the beep means your ticket has been

    validated.

    If you have a pass, you do not need to validate it.

    You can buy a ticket or a pass in the ticket offices.

    There are ticket offices at most of the stations, as

    well as at the terminals.

    Tickets are sold at newsstands as well.

    There are special offers for tourists.

    We recommend that you make use of these offers.
