Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Urban Public Transportation Systems: Implementing Efficient Urban Transit Systems and Enhancing Transit Usage


An overview is given on the fare integration ambitions in the Budapest region including 170 settlements and approximately 3.3 million inhabitants and serving more than 85% of the commuters to Budapest. As such, the institutional and legal framework of establishing the Budapest Transport Association is discussed. The basic contract of the authorities responsible for public transport provision-the Municipality of Budapest in case of urban and the Central Government in case of interurban transport-would be the fundamental document to express the political and economic intentions.
