Due to delegation visit, there will be changes in public transport services on 2 February 2017 On 2 February 2017 (Thursday), a foreign body of delegates arrives in the Hungarian capital. To ensure safe transport for the delegation, traffic restrictions will be ordered by the Budapest Police Headquarters on several main routes in Budapest. There will be restricted access to roads around Lisz Ferenc International Airport for a short period of time, therefore BKK recommends that passengers whose flights depart between 11:30 and 13:00 and 17:00 and 19:30 leave their home for the airport much sooner than usual. Kossuth Lajos tér and its vicinity will be closed from early morning and metro line M1 will be replaced by buses during the daytime. During the arrival of the delegation in the early afternoon and departure in the early evening, among others, the entry section of the M3 motorway and the route section of Kós Károly sétány- Andrássy út–Bajcsy Zsilinszky út–Alkotmány utca–Kossuth Lajos tér will be restricted and the services of several public transport lines will be modified.  

Traffic restrictions in public transport

To ensure safe transport for the delegation arriving in Budapest on 2 February (Thursday), the following routes will be closed:
  • Kossuth Lajos tér and its vicinity: the route section Markó utca–Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út–Báthory utca–Hold utca–Hercegprímás utca–Arany János utca–Nádor utca–Garibaldi utca–Pest Lower Embankment from 0:00 for an expected period to 20:00;

Changes in public transport services

Road closures due to the safe transport of the delegation affect also public transport services, as follows:
  • During the arrival and departure of the delegation, the route section going to Liszt Ferenc International Airport will be closed for the minimum required amount of time, therefore bus line 200E will be running only to Vecsés, Market Centrál. BKK recommends that passengers whose flights depart between 11:30 and 13:00 and 17:00 and 19:30 leave their home for the airport much sooner than usual.

  • Metro line M1 will be replaced by buses during the daytime.
  • During the arrival of the delegation in the early afternoon and departure in the early evening, the services of public transport lines running in the affected route in cross direction (among others, tram lines 1, 4 and 6) will be adjusted to the transport of the delegation, thus the services of public transport lines will be restricted for an expected period of 20-30 minutes in both occasions.
