Passengers who do not comply with the face-mask obligation, as a consequence of which endanger their fellow passengers’ health condition could be even exempted from travel, in line with the Travel Terms and Conditions.

The pandemic rules related to the first wave of the COVID-19 disease were eased in August 2020, some of the restrictive measures previously taken by the Hungarian government were lifted, however the pandemic is still present. It is still mandatory for passengers to cover their face by a mask or kerchief or scarf, while using Budapest’s public transport services. The majority of Budapest’s passengers continue to comply with the rules, however discipline regarding wearing a face-mask is relaxed. Primarily ticket inspectors and also passenger coordinators conducting inspections at metro entry points check whether or not passengers wear a face-mask and, if required, they call passengers’ attention to comply with the rule. Passengers who neglect the face-mask obligation, as a consequence of which endanger their fellow passengers’ health condition could be even exempted from travel, in line with the Travel Terms and Conditions.
