Are those signals rather new?

I don't remember seeing something like that when I visited Budapest six years ago.

Budapest calls tenders for metro Line 3 upgrade
Tuesday, July 19, 2016



BUDAPEST Transport Company (BKV) has issued its first call for tenders for the rebuilding of metro Line 3

The line is to be rebuilt in three phases. Dózsa György út - Újpest-Központ, the most recently built, cut-and-cover section of the line, will be the first to be closed and rebuilt, including six stations and lasting 13 months.

Phase 2 will cover the Lehet tér - Nagyvárad tér stretch, including nine stations, and works will have to be completed within 34 months of contract signing.

Phase 3 will include the remaining five stations, between Népliget and Kőbánya-Kispest, and will also include rebuilding nine buildings at the depot, the phase lasting 31 months

Hi everyone, I have just one question about BuBi (which is a public transportation for me...)

I registered on the website but right after I read this : "Only natural persons with residence in Hungary as well as legal entities, institutions and non-governmental organisations registered and operating in Hungary are entitled to purchase MOL Bubi passes."

Which means that as a traveler who stay only few days in Hungary, I'm not allowed to rent one of these bikes, right? If yes, this is so bad, I was expecting a system as simple as the one we could find in other European cities such Paris, Vienna, London, etc... but the registration process is already sadly too difficult and if it's only opened to resident, I don't get the point of this system....


Edit : oh I found, what I was looking for is "ticket", not "passes", I found how to prepay for the bikes... By the way this website is complicated as hell, they should make it more easy to understand and to use (and less buggy)...

What is a Bubi, It sounds funnier that it probably is.

In Hungarian language single tickets ("jegy") and weekly or monthly passes ("bérlet") are two different things. Unfortunately there is sometimes even in English translation "ticket" and "pass" although in English they're not so strict distincted as in Hungarian.

That something is "Kérem vigyázzanak, az ajtók záródnak", which is the Hungarian version of "Please mind the closing doors", "Zurück bleiben, bitte!" or "осторожно двери закрываются"

So I was in Budapest yesterday and I was really dispointed by BuBi...

I was at Keleti train station, I went to the BuBi bikes who are at the left of the station, I tried to take one.... but first of all, the bike were looking really bad for some of them like of there was no maintenance on it.... I finaly found an available bike (there is a LED on it who tells if the bike works or not - At Keleti, only 1 or 2 bikes in total (over maybe 12 bikes in total in the station), I tried to rent one from the bike itself (the bike have a numeric keybad and a small screen on their back where you can enter your ticket informations or push your contactless BuBi card....

But even if the bike was showing as available and that my subscription was okay, I got the message "bike not available", the same for the other one, I then tried to renti one from the station itself (there is a touchscreen at the station) but it was a pain in the a**, the touchscreen was so bad... it took me something like 2 minutes to enter my phone number and my password...
And same problem, the bike who was showed as "available" were not available... Okay.

So I went in the city and finaly found the "Varoshaza park" station, same problem here, plenty of bikes (13 bikes) but none of them was available....



I saw a woman with what looked like an annual pass card, she pushed it on every bike but none responded (they were all off)...


But finaly at the next BuBi station (Deak Ferenc) I found an available bike (and as other stations it was full of others bike not working...), and I was finaly able to rent it, I pushed my phone number and the passcode on the bike and it unlocked... The bike was kind of okay despite the pedals was in a bad state...


So, in my opinion this system goes from a good idea but it seems to have an unbelievable lack of reliability and a big lack of maintenance on the system and the bikes.... (In other big European cities like Paris for example, the system is way way way more simple and reliable, maybe they understood that the system needs maintenance to works... or maybe they have more experience with the system in Paris (who will have 10 years next year.....)).

Anyway it's very sad because Budapest is very fun to ride with a bike...

BKK tenders Budapest Kelenföld tram extension
Monday, October 17, 2016



BUDAPEST Transport Centre (BKK) has launched a tender for a contract to extend tram Line 1 from Fehérvári út to a new terminus Etele tér adjacent to Kelenföld main line station

The 16.6km line will be extended by nearly 2km with lawn track and raised platforms to enable step-free boarding. The project includes construction of an underground substation and a four-track terminus station at Etele tér, which will not be linked with the existing Line 19/49 terminus
