During the closure of Kossuth Lajos tér metro station, a new boat line will be in operation between Batthyány tér and Kossuth Lajos tér to supplement the replacement bus service. From Tuesday, 27 December 2016, BKK Centre for Budapest Transport will operate the river-crossing service as specified below.

Based on passenger flow measurement, the D2 service will have the following operating schedule from Tuesday, 27December 2016:
- the boat operates on weekdays between 7:30 and 19:30, at weekends between 9:00 and 19:00 and departs every 15 minutes
- in line with the festive period, the boat line will be out of service on 24, 25 and 26 December as well as on 31 December 2016 and 1 January 2017.
BKK continues to consider it important to include waterborne transport in its offering of public transport options in the Hungarian capital.
