Public transportation from the airport
Since taxis are quite inexpensive - expect a ride to downtown to cost around EUR 25-30 we recommend you use BOLT (you can download the app) or Főtaxi. Public transportation from the airport is quite slow and not very comfortable. However, if you’re in for an adventure, here are your options:
The closest train station to Budapest Airport Terminal 2 is Ferihegy, with trains operating to and from the Nyugati railway station in Budapest. Nearly 100 trains per day, including InterCity services, provide easy access to and from the city in less than half an hour, for a few hundred HUF.
From the Ferihegy train station, Terminal 2 is accessible by bus number 200E.

Discount bus tickets cost 300 HUF, and are only available together with the train ticket, from ticket offices at railway stations where tickets are sold from dispenser machines.

Traveling with a BKK ticket, travelcard or pass in Budapest

Single tickets and airport shuttle bus single tickets are valid for one ride, without any trip interruption or transfer. The metro network is an exception in terms of ticket validation: there is no need to validate a new ticket when transferring between metro lines.
You need to validate your single tickets at the start of your journey.
Paper tickets: use a validating machine on board the vehicles or by metro station entrances - it will stamp a code on the ticket or punch a hole.
Digital tickets: scan the validation code stickers, which you will find at the entrance of the metro on the side of the paper-ticket validators and outside by the doors on street-level transport.
Time-based tickets (30 or 90 minutes), which are available only digitally, must always be validated when you board a different vehicle.
