By plane

The large number of low-cost airlines flying to Hungary make Budapest a popular destination in Europe. If you fly one of these airlines, you’re most likely to arrive at Liszt Ferenc International Airport 2B terminal. If you don’t want to take a taxi, which costs approximately 6000 HUF to the inner city, you have two options. You can take bus number 100E which has only two stops besides the airport: Kálvin tér and Deák Ferenc tér. You need to buy a special ticket for this bus (900 HUF) as normal tickets are not valid for it. These buses run every thirty minutes. The other option is to take bus number 200E, which has a more regular timetable, although it is a bit slower as you have to change at the end of the line (Kőbánya-Kispest) for the blue metro line (M3).


By train

If you arrive at Keleti Railway Station, you can take the red or the green metro line (M2 or M4, respectively) or take one of the several buses that run from here. If you arrive at the other large railway station, Nyugati, you can change for local buses as well as the blue metro line (M3).

By bus

International buses arrive at Népliget Bus Station where you can change for the blue metro line (M3) in the direction of Újpest-Központ as well as numerous local buses and trams.

Your best bet is to check Google Maps prior to your arrival or download the BKK Futár application and make your choice according to where your accommodation is.
