What is Budapest the Card?
The card provides access to a set of services designed for tourists visiting Budapest. An official product of the city, it enables the holder to use reliable, selected tourism services free of charge or at a reduced price, including the free and unlimited use of the public transport system, free entry to museums and baths, and reduced-price catering and cultural services.
With a valid Budapest Card you can travel for unlimited rides on all public transportation lines of the BKV Zrt., including trams, trolleybuses, metro lines, the Millennium Underground Railway, the cogwheel railway, buses, city boats, the HÉV suburban railway line within the administrative boundary of Budapest, and on Bus 200E to the airport terminals. Please show your Budapest Card to the driver when entering the vehicle, or to the controller when requested. The Budapest Card is not valid for the Buda Castle Funicular and the Zugliget Chairlift.

Take advantage of the free Budapest Card services: free access to public transport, one free entrance to the Lukács thermal baths, free use of a safe for valuables and free entrance to 12 museums.
