Arriving to Budapest

Arriving to Budapest Liszt Ferenc Airport Terminal 2

The airport is well served by public trasport (BKK). An added-value service, bus line 100E serves the city center directly. (Traditional BKK tickets are not valid on it, you need to purchase a separate ticket for 900 HUF [3 EUR].)

A regular bus line, line number 200E commutes between Terminal 2 and Kőbánya-Kispest metro terminal (metro line M3). To reach the University, you need to change at Kálvin tér metro station to metro line M4 (direction: Kelenföld vasútállomás). Corvinus University is situated at the very next stop (Fővám tér). Two BKK (Budapest Public Transport) offices operate at the airport: one at Terminal 2A (arrivals) and another at Terminal 2B (arrivals).

The airport's official taxi operator is Főtaxi. Taxis in Budapest are subject to a 'Taxi Decree' with regulated prices. A ride to the city center should typically cost around 7.000-10.000 HUF (22-31 EUR) depending on traffic conditions. Since there are many issues with taxis in Budapest, we advise you not to use non-regulated taxi service providers. It is safest to call for a taxi through a phone operator (for doing so, a dedicated Főtaxi booth is also available at the aiport.)

A minibus service (miniBUD) also operates from the airport. MiniBUD Desks are to be found at every terminal. The transfer operates as a shared-ride service, which means that you might have to wait a little before a minibus gets filled with people heading towards the same area.

When geeting back to the Airport, care to leave enough time to arrive (during the day: minimum 1 hour): since Budapest does not yet have a track-based option to and from the Airport, traffic is a heavy bottleneck. Also, bus line 100E can sometimes be crowded.

For more information on arriving to Budapest Airport, please visit:

Arriving by train to Budapest Keleti Pályaudvar

Metro lines M2 and M4 are the main transport services serving the train station. Direct metro connection to Corvinus University by line M4.
We advise you not to use non-regulated taxi service providers or to take a taxi ride whatsoever from the train station (unless called for through a phone operator).

Budapest Public Transport (BKK)

Website: http://www.bkk.hu/en/

Ticket offices: http://www.bkk.hu/en/ticket-offices/
Timetables: http://www.bkk.hu/en/timetables/
Tickets & prices: http://www.bkk.hu/en/prices/
Budapest transport maps: http://www.bkk.hu/en/maps/

We advise you to purchase a 72-hour or a 7-day travel pass (respectively: 4150 and 4950 HUF, approx. 13 and 16 EUR). The BKK pass is valid on every metro, tram, bus and trolleybus line operated by BKK and every suburban bus (Volánbusz) and local train line (MÁV) within the Budapest administrative area.

BKK offices operate at the aiport (see above) or closest to the venue at Kálvin tér metro station (5 mins from Corvinus). You can also purchase tickets from vending machines that equally accept bank cards and contactless payment. These can be found closest at Fővám tér metro/tram station, Szent Gellért tér metro station or Kálvin tér metro station (and also at the airport). Ticket vending machines also have foreign language options.

If you can spare the time, we advise you to take a scenic ride on tram no. 2. (stops at Fővám tér, near Corvinus) towards the center. Tram 2 circulates on the left bank (Pest side) of the Danube, and offers a great view of Buda (and with it, Gellért hill with the Citadel, Buda Castle or Matthias Church). Another great sighteeing tram route is the joint section of trams no. 19 and 41 which run along the Danube on the Buda side (right bank). They connect Battyanyi Square (metro line M2) with Gellért Square (and with it, Hotel Gellért) stopping at Adam Clark Square (Funicular to Buda Castle) and offer a great view of Pest (Parliament, Duna corso, Chain bridge [Lánchíd], Liberty bridge [Szabadság-híd]) as well as the joint section of trams no. 47 and 49, which connects Deák tér (the heart of the city, at the junction of metro lines M1, M2 and M3), the Small Boulevard [Kiskörút] with the National Museum, the Central Market Hall, Fővám tér and Corvinus University, and Gellért Square).
