TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT
Taxis can be accessed at the Főtaxi booths located at the exits of Terminals 2A and 2B. At the taxi ranks in front of the stands, taxis are continuously waiting for passengers. Public transportation: take bus 100E between the Airport and Deák Ferenc square. Kálvin square is the closest station to the university. The ticket is only 1500 HUF, and you can buy it at the purple machines just outside of the terminal. More information: https://bkk.hu/en/
Public transportation in Budapest is dense and reliable. For travel information, schedules, live tracking, and tickets, we suggest using BudapestGO app. Tickets and passes can also be bought at the purple machines in the main hubs. Printed tickets must be validated after boarding or at the entrance of metro stations. Never use public transportation without a valid ticket. For taxis, we suggest using Bolt or Főtaxi apps and ordering your taxi there. Uber and other ridesharing services are not working in Budapest. It is not recommended to use taxis picked up on the street, especially when “freelancer” is indicated on the side doors. Do not use any taxi without a company logo printed on the side of the car.
If you have time, take bus number 16 from Deák Ferenc square to the Castle district for Buda Castle, Matthias Church, and Fisherman’s Bastion. Visit Heroes Square, Museum of Fine Arts, or Széchényi Thermal Bath in the City Park using metro number 1 from Deák Ferenc square or walk along the fancy Andrássy Avenue. From the university, you can use trams number 47/49 to reach National Museum (Kálvin square), Dohány Street Synagogue (Astoria), and Saint Stephen’s Basilica (Deák Ferenc square). Tram line number 2 gives you a scenic ride from the university to the Parliament along the Danube. Do not miss the Great Market Hall just next to the university. If you're feeling sporty, climb up to the Freedom Statue on Gellért Hill for the best views of the city. For a drink, visit Szimpla Kert ruin bar (can get crowded) or other bars around Király street and Kazinczy street.
In Budapest, streets are generally safe to walk, even during late hours. Just exercise normal caution like anywhere else, beware of pickpockets, do not buy fake products from illegal street vendors, and do not exchange currency on the street or in restaurants/shops. In any case of emergency, call 112.
