Single ticket bought on the spot


What are the rules for using this fare product?

It is valid for a one-way single trip; trip interruptions and return trips are not permitted, except for metro lines, where transferring between the metro lines is possible if going in one direction (return trips in the opposite direction are not allowed).


For what services is the pass valid?

Within the administrative boundaries of Budapest for almost all BKK services and suburban buses (lines 1-99, 101-299, 900-999, M1, M2, M3, M4), on HÉV suburban railway lines (H5, H6, H7, H8, H9). This pass is not valid on the 100E Airport Express.


Ticket validation

On the metro network (lines M1, M2, M3 and M4), the single ticket bought on the spot must be validated with a validating machine at the metro station entrance before you start your trip by entering the paying zone beyond the row of validators. On all other services, ticket validation must be done upon boarding the vehicle or upon departure at the latest. If you need to transfer to a replacement vehicle (e.g. in the event of service cancellation, breakdown, track closure), you can continue your journey with the ticket already validated, but you must re-validate the ticket by stamping its end without the number grid, with the validator aboard the replacement vehicle.


Validity period

In case it is stamped, the journey must be completed no later than 80 minutes from the time of validation, or 120 minutes on night services, meaning that the single, one-way, no-transfer uninterrupted trip must be completed within this time period.
