Common Bus Lines/Routes In Budapest

The Autóbusz Lines/Routes And 100E Airport Shuttle Bus

Budapest has a total of 248 Autóbusz lines, some of which you will find details of below, which means you can travel virtually anywhere within Budapest by Autóbusz alone. Where applicable, I have mentioned some of the main routes that may be of interest to a tourist, student, someone living in Budapest (off/on) and/or someone thinking of buying a property in Budapest.


Budapest now has an Airport Shuttle Bus service, the 100E, that travels from Budapest International Airport to Budapest city centre; and back. The exact route, which should take 30-40 Minutes, is: Liszt Ferenc Airport (Terminal 2) - Kálvin Tér (Metro station) - Astoria (Metro station) - Deák Ferenc Tér (Metro station). The stops at Kálvin Tér and Astoria are to drop passengers off only.

The first bus leaves Budapest airport at 5am, with other buses leaving every 20 Minutes from then. The last bus leaves Budapest airport at 1:20am (the following morning). The return journey is: Deák Ferenc Tér (Metro station) - Liszt Ferenc Airport (Terminal 2). It is also expected to take 30-40 Minutes. The first bus from the city (Deák Ferenc Tér metro station) leaves at 3:40am and the last bus from the city leaves at 12:40am (the following morning).

A single, one-way, ticket currently costs 900 HUF (around £2.46) and can be bought from a BKK Ticket Machine (Card or Cash), A BKK Customer Service Centre (Card or Cash) or On-Board The Bus itself (exact change needed).

NOTE: The Kalvin Tér bus stop is actually on the main road called Üllői Út.

NOTE: With the return journey from Deák Ferenc Tér (Metro station) to Liszt Ferenc Airport (Terminal 2), the first two buses (4am and 4:30am) stop at the Astoria metro station for boarding purposes only; and at the Kalvin Tér metro station as standard for boarding purposes only.

If the above autobusz line pdf files have been updated by BKK whereby the above links no longer work, you can download these older versions. The stops and timetables should not have changed that much, if at all.

For more information, about other lines and timetables for example, visit the BKK Public Transport RoutesPublic Transport Timetables web page.

TIP: If you are going to buy a 24 Hour travel pass, get one from a railway station as it will be a printed version (as shown in the right column above) - You just show it to metro staff or bus drivers instead of inserting it into an orange ticket-validation machine each time. I saw so many people miss their metro train due to time wasted validating their ticket in the machine.
