today no, because all trains terminate, so they dont share that many common sections

the future programme is to upgrade those stations inside and when the trains are operating as s-bahn, it will be much more common

still, on most sections you can catch a train 2-3 times an hour per dicrection inside Bp. today

I used the HEV line last year when I was in Budapest. I found it easy to use and efficient. The trains were a bit old, however. Overall I loved the transit in Budapest.

great

well we have a long way to go

one of the more important things is to increase the capacity of regular lines in the 10-20 km vicinity of budapest (where they converge) so that those secions allow intervals as low as a couple of (4-5) minutes / direction

Kelenföld-Budaörs should be 4 lines
Kelenföld-Budafok should be 4 lines
Kelenföld-Ferencváros should be 3-4 lines
Western-Rákospalota/Újpest should be 4 (operating) lines
körvasút-Rákos should be 4 (operating) lines

Is German an official language in Hungary? Why is the system called an "S-bahn"? Is it a subway?

S-Bahn is becoming a common term for rapid commuter type service that is often underground in city centers. Common to metro service is frequent headways, level boarding, and other metro type service. Generally they run further out of the core of the city, stations are further apart, and service outside the core may be less frequent.

The HEV lines in Budapest are underground in some parts of the city and at grade in others; they are not a proper "metro" type of service or rolling stock.

No,german isnt official here.

Because we dont have a word for it. Or to be more precise,we do have a word for it,but it doesnt tell the difference between S-bahn and commuter railway.

Parts of it will be metros.

Szivesen! Sajnos egy kicsit magyarul beszélek, szňval angolul folytatok...

Fővám Tér is, in my opinion, the most interesting station of them all. I find its roof really nice nice and worth seeing. Have you got any rendering of how it'll look like, once completed? I think it'll have some spectacular light effects.

Budapest Metro is a real jewel, I love riding M3, with its infinite escalators. To bad the kontrol always yell at me for trying to snap pictures of it.

Project of this metro line looks very good! When will be put into operation and is it true that the trains will be automatic - no driver? Once the platforms are 80 meters long at what will be in the wagon train - 4 or 5? Provides you a line to go above ground and there is a station with side platforms?
