PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN BUDAPEST GUIDE

Published by Darron Toy on



you dinner last night was pizza and of course if you have leftovers for pizza you have to have cold pizza for breakfast let me know in the comments down below if you like cold pizza especially for breakfast that's amazing so let's take a bite of this it's really good that's like a garlic paste too as well you gotta love dr. Edgar dr. [Applause] the tannery no I thought the jaggery is sting if I google jamberry don't believe me you're gonna be for a while right so after a crazy morning of haircutting seems to be a lot of haircutting in these vlogs at the minute I think that's gonna change because now there's no more hair to be cut except which may be cut in the middle of the night you never know anyway today I thought I would take you out and I thought I'd do something a little bit different because I'm kind of used to the transportation in Budapest now but you might not know much about it so I was going to show you the different types of transportation you can get while you're in Budapest so let's go towards octagon it's a place where a lot of public transport like intercepts each other so I'm going to show you the public transportation down there the machine that you just saw is where you buy your tickets from you can buy single tickets weekly tickets a pack of ten you can buy a Monthly Pass and when you get onto public transportation you'll see like little square box and basically you have to put like the tickets inside and it stamps it if you get a weekly pass or a monthly pass then you don't need to put it in the machine every time because it's a card with a date stamped on it you do however have to put in like some sort of identification number ie passport number or Java license number or something like that so as you can see these buses are connected by the electricity lines up here and basically they do like runs around the city so the blue bus that I just showed you basically has no electricity on it it's like a diesel powered bus a normal bus and they obviously go on different routes but these ones can only go on certain routes because of the electricity lines they can however take them down and run without them they do have like a battery cells incorporated so they can't run without it but it is quite funny when they go around the city sometimes and their things fly off and the drivers like out at the back trying to get them back on and obviously the other mode of transport as well is a taxi now all the taxis in Budapest are yellow I'm not too sure about if it's all over Hungary or it's just Budapest where all the taxis in Budapest are yellow there's no like uber or grab here they have like bandit there is a thing called faux taxi where it's kind of like the uber app but you call taxis so you can download that and use that if you want to while you're here taxis are also quite inexpensive but it will cost you I think around 20 22 euros from the airport in a taxi but there is also an airport bus which I'll show you in a little while and I'll show you where it drops you off in the city so what I'm going to do now is I'll show you the old the second oldest underground line in Europe which runs right under this Mae I'm standing next to and also the other two lines the underground lines that you can go on as well the other two underground lines are very very deep underground so yeah if you are like so scared of being underground I don't know what that phobia would be but yeah they're really deep so don't go down there if you're claustrophobic I guess so this is down to the oldest one it's literally right so under the road and this is the machinist telling you about where you put your tickets obviously can buy tickets here as well where there's no one here today and these trains come like every couple of minutes they're really really quick one thing I will suggest doing while you're here in Budapest is if you are going to get the transportation around is by more than one ticket because those ticket machines that you see aren't everywhere and they're not every single station so you're better off if you're not going to do many just buy a pack of ten it's 3204 a pack of ten which is pretty cheap and obviously if you're here for a week weekly ticket if you're here for a month get a monthly ticket you know you can pretty much go everywhere in the city on those passes and you can even get a little boat across the water across the Danube on the same transportation to get as well nice this definitely isn't any public transportation in Budapest so don't get your hopes up so this is actually a very popular place in Budapest this area here under underneath this water there's actually a bar but this whole area is like really big for like students like drinking and you know every night like almost nice in the summer every night in the summer people were just drinking here they were like paddling in the water and stuff laughs that's really cool so over here you have like the big ferris wheel so if you can find this area then you're not far from the airport bus drop-off place which is just over here and I'll show you that now [Applause] decorate this tree and knitted a jumper how cool is that [Applause] the Apple bus is over here so as you can see here this is the bus stop for the airport bus and you can pick it up from here I'll show you the times on the screen now but it costs you nine hundred huh you cannot use your general transportation ticket for this bus you have to actually actually you have to actually buy a separate ticket for nine hundred half which is pretty good to the airport to be honest it's your cheapest way and it's direct you know it stops off at a couple of other places but it'll take you straight to the airport behind that if you can see in the distance is the old yellow tram now these all the other trams go all the way around the city as well I'll show you that one in a minute unfortunately this one is going to be difficult for people with a disability because it does have quite steep steps going up into it and then as you've seen before the underground station connects between here as well so you can get on I think it's the red line and the old underground line from this area so like I was saying before this is actually like a really sensual part of like sort of budapest really behind me I've got like the Jewish quarter going back up through there I've got like the main road over here like a ferris wheel in the background and stuff the airport bus drops you up here pretty much get on the old tram get on the underground system pick up all the sightseeing buses as well it's just a really like substantial area behind me that way towards the water that's when you sort of getting into the inner city if you get dropped off here from the airport it's really simple to get around and also if you are looking for like a hotel in Budapest then like look in this area I'll show you on the map now and it's going to be really easy for you to get around and find your hotel one of my biggest tips for Budapest and any other city really you get a lot of sirens in the city so just be aware of that when you're booking a hotel near a main road however yeah what I was trying to say is a really good tip is Google Maps you know is a really cool feature for public transport you can just click where you are where you're going to and click on the public transport and it'll tell you what bus you need what tram you need what underground line you need it's really really simple and really really easy to use so definitely check that out this is what they're trying to say about the steps getting up into so if you do have any sort of disability then just be aware of that step to make it really simple for you they've got as you can see here you've got the yellow line the red underground line the blue underground line so if you're looking for the underground you look for the color line and that's your color pretty simple just walk him back up to octagon because me and Ali are going to go to funky fo a little Vietnamese restaurant and I came across the parking meter and the parking meter has a steering wheel on top who has lost their steering wheel for their car what is going on [Applause] so we've had up the give a six out of ten give a six out of ten yeah she well she Holly won't go back apparently Jeffrey won't go back it was it was alright but it wasn't like oh my god Cellino Vietnamese sandwich guy now that is amazing that's really good yeah we'll take you guys the Vietnamese sandwich let me know in the comments down below if you want to see somewhere in Hungary in Budapest Hungary for a Vietnamese sandwich oh we're just gonna go for a coffee now and and chill out for a little while and then yeah we'll see what happens up there pumpkins miss Nellie pumpkin day

Thanks for a great video! I got one query – Are all metro stations accessible by only escalators or do you have steps also? I got Escalaphobia :-/

Yes, I love cold pizza. Especially if one is hung over from a evening/night of drinking vodka or whatever your favorite poison is.

Are the machines to buy public transport tickets all over, like at every bus stop, metro stop and tram stop or where do you find them? Thanks!

Mátyás Erdősi · May 15, 2019 at 2:54 pm

Every tourist should download „BKK FUTÁR” application!!

10:45 Don't take the tram, if you have autism. Your disability will prevent you from walking up those stairs. :3

Good food was June 2018 in Budapest visit relatives

Taxis are yellow only in Budapest. They are managed by BKK, the transport authorizor of the city, that's why all taxi companies and private cab owners have the same tariff and same standards (color, age of car, etc) here.

Note to seniors, the subways and buses are free. I traveled to Budapest in May 2018 and was happy to learn this. I'm American, from Pennsylvania and age 67. We stayed at the Paulay Downtown Apartments across the street and a short walk from the pool shown in this video (at about the 7:15 mark) for 45 Euros which jumped up to 90 Euros one day later. Don't know why. It was a not fancy but was clean and quiet. We found another place in walking distance called Gozsdu Court Aparthotel for 52 Euros that was a beautiful apartment with separate bedroom, full kitchen, small living room with a couch/bed convertible and lots of windows. The drawback was a very lively open area in the courtyard below our 3rd floor place that boomed music until 1am. I slept ok anyway. The air was cool and dry (didn't seem to be any humidity or mosquitos or other bugs) and I slept with the windows wide open. When we went home we easily walked to the airport bus stop that is shown very nicely at the end of this video at about the 9 minute mark. The bus took us right into the airport in about 30 minutes.

Your other option to the airport is to take underground line M3 (Blue) to the Kőbánya-Kispest terminus, where you can transfer to the bus line 200E, which does not require a special ticket. Alternatively, you can use most MÁV trains as well as long as they are suburban trains, these lines are designated by a letter and a two-digit number. If you are at the Nyugati train station, you can take any of the following trains with a Budapest 24h,72h, weekly or monthly pass (But not with a single or bundled ticket!!): S50, Z50, G50, S21 – these trains can connect you with the 200E bus at Kőbánya-Kispest as well!

Hi Scotty I will like to know what's the taxi app you mention just now?

HUNdAntae · May 15, 2019 at 2:54 pm

Also note passes are valid for perennial trains (green) and the normal trains up to the first stop outside Bp. If you go any further (like daytrip to Szentendre or Gödöllő to the Grassalkovich castle, Queen Sissy's favourite place) you can buy an extension or supplement ticket to your destination.

Japhet Kineze · May 15, 2019 at 2:54 pm
