1 OVERVIEW OF BUDAPEST S TRANSPORTATION NETWORK From the airport: Budapest Airport offers a shuttle bus service called Airport Minibus, which allows easy, comfortable and relatively quick transfer from the Airport to custom locations. At the airport you should find an 'Airport Minibus' kiosk, where you can order the Minibus service (3000 HUF)... Using the Airport Minibus, you'll be transferred directly from the Airport to your destination. This is more expensive, but also much easier than public transportation. Of course, you can also use taxi to get to your residence. Airport transfer usually costs a fixed amount of money, which is around 5000 HUF. Or you can choose BKV (Budapest s public transportation company). In this case you should first take bus 200, and you will arrive to M3 terminus Kőbánya-Kispest. Please note that you cannot buy a student pass until you own a student ID! Until that time, a single ticket is 320 HUF, a 10-pack of single tickets is 2800 HUF, a 1-day ticket is 1550 HUF, a 3-day ticket is 3850 HUF, and a 1- week ticket is 4600 HUF (prices as of 24 th of January 2011). The main BKV lines are shown on this page; basically you will need to use those to get around the city. However, there are many more bus and tram lines, you will get used to them, just take your time.
2 BUDAPEST S NIGHT TRANSPORTATION NETWORK All tickets and passes are valid on any night bus service. Be warned: Budapest is a big city, you can meet all kinds of strange people on these buses!
