So logical, that it's actually amazing they didn't think it through fully when the HEV was cut back and partially replaced by the red metro line.

Actually, Puskás Ferenc Stadion stop was built with 4 tracks, to allow an almost direct change between the 2 different systems. One would have had to walk from one side of the platform to the other.

Is that last sentence correct?

New trams in Budapest on test runs

47 Spanish-made CAF trams will form part of Budapest’s new fleet, including longer and shorter models. The shorter, 34-metre variety of the tram will run on the redeveloped line 3 on the outskirts of Pest and the interconnected network of tram lines in Buda, which will be established in several phases. The 56-metre model, which is to be even longer than the Combino trams currently running on lines 4 and 6, will run on route 1.
A total of twenty-five 34-metre trams are expected to arrive in Budapest until the summer and the new fleet is scheduled to serve passenghers starting from autumn on line 3.

















Initially, testing was carried out overnight when other services were not running, currently they're making daytime tests mostly on line 1.

Not any.
- Line 3 is one thing
- The interconnected network of Buda (Line 17 connected to lines 19, 41 and 61) is another one.

Budapest Line 3 refurbishment to be retendered?
Wednesday, July 29, 2015



BUDAPEST Transport Company (BKV) may be forced to restart tendering for a contract worth more than €200m to refurbish 37 ageing six-car trains used on Budapest metro Line 3 after one of the bidders raised objections to how the procurement was handled

Of 22 parties that submitted expressions of interest to BKV, five companies were accepted into the discussion phase of which four submitted initial bids. Of these, Škoda Transportation and CAF did not submit final binding bids, while Skinest Rail, Estonia, was disqualified because it had not submitted certain documents and failed to meet compulsory technical criteria

The CAFs in Sydney have badly-designed seats over the bogies which cause people to have their feet blocking the aisle. They also don't ride very well. I hope you get a better job in Budapest.

AFAIK they will replace high floor Tatra trams on line 1 and the "buda" lines and high floor TW6000 (second-hand trams from germany) on line 3, so it will (afaik) be an improvement compared to the old trams. Also AFAIK there are only major passenger flows at a few interchange points on theese lines.

Interesting! There are some new CAF trams in Stockholm, Sweden, which isn't that far away from where I live, but I haven't had a ride with any of them yet. I haven't heard anything bad about them though...

The Stockholm CAFs are a different design and don't have the ride and seating issues. The Sydney CAFs are the same design as the Budapest ones.

Low floor is certainly better than high floor but there is a large reduction in the number of doors per length compared to the Tatras and even the TW6000.

The longest tram has arrived in Budapest

The first 56 meter long tram was delivered by CAF yesterday and was quickly assembled near Örs vezér tere. It was transported in 3 pieces by trucks from Spain. This model is 2 meters longer than the Siemens Combino, running on lines 4 and 6. The world's longest tram will run on line 1.
Here are some pictures of the assembly. Enjoy!

Budapest finalises metro train refurbishment deal
Tuesday, August 11, 2015



BUDAPEST Transport Company (BKV) signed a €219.2m contract with Metrowagonmash, Russia, on August 7 for the refurbishment of 37 six-car trains used on Budapest metro Line 3 after Hungary's public tendering court (KDB) rejected a complaint against the decision brought by Estonia's Skinest Rail

Of 22 parties that submitted expressions of interest to BKV, five companies were accepted into the discussion phase of which four submitted initial bids. Of these, Škoda Transportation and CAF did not submit final binding bids, while Skinest Rail, was disqualified because it had not submitted certain documents and failed to meet compulsory technical criteria
