The blog notes that temperatures in excess of 36 degrees Centrigrade measured on select buses are in line with the complaints. Furthermore, users of "Tudatos Közlekedő" (Conscious Commuter), the blogʼs online platform for public transport complaints, also confirm their data.

The report adds that as many as 381 buses this year were mentioned on the complaint platform by different individuals, independently of each other.

The civil group received the most reports about AC problems regarding buses on lines 5, 7, 9, 4-6, 200E, 136E, 194M, 223M, 32, and 21.
