MISC | Night Services

the nightbus system is going to be changed from the 1st of september in budapest which means that its gonna improve the suburban nightlife too. the actual nightbus system is still very efficient ( compared to other cities in the world ) but im very happy that after some 10 years they do a huge change
heres the map from 1st of september:

Good idea, Kucksi!

From 5am to about 1am the busses, trams and s-bahn works normally. Inbetween there are nightbusses and trains but you have to pay en extra fare for them and they are only packed with drunken and vandalizing teenageres... :-(

BS, there are of course some drunken guys, but you normally can go home without any problem.

this was a big problem in the old nightbusses. But since the night-trains are running there aren't any big problems. And I should know it, I have been on the nighttrrains many many times.

Also if you go on the new trains (~1:00 and ~3:00 clock) the trains aren't that packed, still most go on the old scedule (~2:00 clock and ~4:00 clock).

Of course I can only speak about the SN5 line.

Generaly the vandalizing problem is much better since every train has train-polize on the trains after 21:00.

To the suburbs, we have now a train every hour, has been every two hours before. And only on Friday/Saturday and Saturday/Sunday night.
It's all a very new system, but it's a great success. The had to go from every 2 hourto every 1 hour because there are so many people on the trains and busses (see Kuesels post) now it has enough space. But if the whole thing gets even more popular maybe we even get to every 1/2 hour.

Also maybe the net could be made denser. I still can get home at night from Winterthur by train/bus and I would like that aswell.

Melbourne has it's Nightrider system, with all the routes originating at the same spot near the Town Hall; (except for the loop routes in the eastern suburbs). The official map's not the best unfortunately.

More information, timetables, etc. at Metlink

EJ: maybe you are right - I haven't been on a nightbus for years. The train security got better also because of the cameras and patrols (although I also don't trust these private "Rambos" too much ). Unfortunatly there are people who don't even care about that. Also I take a lot the 31 bus home through the whole Kreis 4 and never made bad experiences, though the atmosphere is tense. But I also never witnessed one single crime while living in Sao Paulo - maybe I am lucky: I only attract crazy and drunk people, but no robbers

The Amsterdam Nightbus network. These services exist since 1969, the network was radically changed (other routers and numbers) in 2003.

Amsterdam is the only city in the Netherlands with nightbuses seven days a week. Rotterdam and The Hague (and some other cities) have only nightbus services in weekends.



Besides the city services, there are in weekends also some regional services to Zaandam, Landsmeer, Purmerend, Amstelveen, Uithoorn, Haarlem and Almere. Unfortunately, these services are not shown on this map.

Nightbus network in Hamburg


Center of the network is the town hall station. It operates monday to friday. On friday night and saturday night the metros (U-Bahn) and suburban trains (S-Bahn) run every 20 minutes. Also some major buslines of the Metrobus-network and some special nightbus lines run during the nights on weekend.
The fares for the night services is the same as for normal busses on day service.

In Buenos Aires the same lines that run during the day run also during the night. And they're more than 350! The frequency is nevertheless lower.

Minneapolis-St. Paul has a very limited night owl bus service, but at least it exists. It is only available on a few routes, and i am not aware of any list that tells which buses run all night, the schedules are simply marked with an owl symbol. Usually the buses run every hour after 1:30 or so.
