Heritage public transport services in July 2014

On July weekends special heritage transport services are offered this year again.

Heritage tramway service

Turn back time by riding the hundred-year-old tramcars along the most beautiful sights of the Hungarian capital and feel the original atmosphere of late 19th-century Budapest. There is an outstanding view from the route  to admire the sights like the Buda Castle, the Fisherman’s Bastion and Gellért Hill.

Hundred-year-old tramcars   marked with a “J” are in operation on Sundays, 20 and 27 July on tram line 2 which  is among National Geographic magazine’s Top 10 tram rides.

Vintage trams depart hourly from Jászai Mari tér terminus from 16:56 to 21:56 and from Közvágóhíd from 16:25 to 21:25 every hour.

Heritages bus service

Another fantastic opportunity is available in July for those who want to experience history live: BKV and the BKK jointly operate an articulated Ikarus 180 made in 1970 between Deák Ferenc tér M and Szentendre, a picturesque town  north of Budapest that is also called “the gate of the Danube Bend”.

The heritage bus service  is in operation on Saturday, 26 July. The 44-year-old bus is marked with a sign “C”.

The Ikarus 180 bus departs from Deák Ferenc tér M terminus at 10.00, 12.30 and 15.00 and back from Szentendre at 11.30, 14.00 and 16.30.
