Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, is facing a series of challenges in the field of transport and mobility.

Budapest is touched by 3 TEN-T road corridors, the Mediterranean corridor, the Orient / East-Med corridor and the Rhine-Danube corridor. All three corridors carry significant domestic and international passenger and freight traffic. The Mediterranean corridor touches Budapest in easterly-westerly direction. M1-M7 motorway from west and M3 motorway from east. The direct connection of two motorways through the city is the MORE corridor.

Although TEN-T corridors officially bypass Budapest through M0 motorway, the cars and freight traffic often appear in the city centre. The traffic can go through the city without much time loss and the city centre is most easily accessible on this route for suburban road traffic. MORE will look into these in particular.

Budapest’s tram system had been in operation since 1866.

The city has around 200km of bike lanes.

Vehicles in Budapest are labelled by coloured plaques to signify their level of emissions.
