Could you tell me any more about line 36? Where was it planned to go and why did it get cancelled?

Nice that line 1 will be extended!

Is there any site with more details? (I.E. details like how the layout of the streets will look like)

Will line 1 share tracks with 17/18/41/47 on Fehérvári út?

Will only line 1 be extended in Ürömi út, or will line 17 also use the extention?

Tram line 36 runned from 1958 till 1994 between Keleti pályaudvar (Eastern railway station) and Kápolna tér (square). The line was cancelled in the fall of 1994 due to low occupancy, but it's track wasn't removed yet (!). It was replaced by bus line
95.
BKK has a plan to renew this line, and to lenght it's track from Kápolna square.

I made a map to see it's route (sorry for bad quality I made it with Paint )

AWARD OF THE SUPPLY OF 37 TRAMS FOR BUDAPEST

CAF signed today the contract to supply 37 low floor trams, with an extension option for up to a further 87 vehicles, for the city of Budapest. These will be purchased by BKK, the organization responsible for the city's transport. The tender, starting early this year, established the need for 2 tram types, 25 of which are 34 metres long, with the remaining 12 vehicles being 56 metres long. The contract amounts to approximately €90 M and the project has been funded by the European Union in the framework of current investment and development plans implemented in this country.

The Hungarian capital, a pioneer in this means of transport, boasts an extensive tram network with almost 40 lines running throughout the city. Some of these lines are among the lines carrying the highest numbers of passengers across Europe. The decision of the Hungarian authorities to award the project to CAF was based on the grounds of the design and technical features of the units offered by CAF, as well as the possibility of storing energy on board for catenary-free travel along sections of the old quarters of the city.

The Urbos platform trams are the vehicles proposed for the city of Budapest, consisting of five and nine module units. This is a two-way vehicle with four double doors on each side of the five module tram, and seven double doors on the nine module tram. They are prepared to run on 1435 mm gauge track at a service speed of 50 km/h.

The five module trams have a capacity of 326 passengers whilst the nine module trams can transport up to 562 passengers, and they will become one of the longest in the world. The entire tram surface is at the same level, providing easier access for persons with reduced mobility, including passengers in wheelchairs or with pushchairs (two per vehicle).

The system is also equipped with a state-of-the-art video entertainment and passenger information system (interior and exterior panels, TFT screens, emergency intercoms, etc.) for perfect passenger orientation.

Also of note, CAF is currently executing another project in the country, supplying trams for the city of Debrecen, underlining the company's special interest in the European market. Stand out projects, amongst those currently implemented by the company on the continent, include the supply of trams for the cities of Stockholm, Belgrade, Besançon, Tallinn, Fribourg and Birmingham, metro units for Rome, Bucharest and Helsinki and regional and commuter trains for various regions in Italy.

Photos were taken by BKK at the newly reconstructed Kossuth Lajos tér(square) around the Parliament. Several types of trams were tested on the new track alignment (Line 2).

It will be too difficult to take lines 78+79 to the new terminal, so line 78 will be end at it's old stop in Garay street.

Finally, the new trolley and bus terminal launched today:
