Visiting Budapest with the BKK application: the real-time public transport application
Hello dear traveler, Recently, I told you about the Mobiljegy application, an application that allows you to buy a ticket to visit Budapest for 24 hours or a ticket for the shuttle between the airport and the city centre. Today, I'm going to talk about the BKK application (for iPhone/Android). BKK is the acronym for the Budapest public transport company.
As their transport networks are relatively modern, Hungary decided to create a real-time public transport application. Its use is very simple. Go to the "Trip Planner" tab, enter your departure and arrival address and the time you want to make the trip. You will be suggested different routes with different modes of transport. Choose the one you want. For each route, you will be able to see the different modes of transport in real time. All routes will be detailed stop by stop. So you won't have to run anymore to avoid waiting for the next bus or tram!
This application is complementary with the Mobiljegy application. Indeed, the BKK application is used to move efficiently while the Mobiljegy application is used to buy transport tickets to avoid fines. Be careful, checks in Budapest transports are very frequent. With the BKK application, you won't have to worry about travel during your stay in Budapest. You will have in your pocket the indispensable tool to plan your trips from point A to point B in a few seconds.
