The Budapest Public Transport Company (BKK) started offering fares for unlimited travel for periods of 30 and 90 minutes on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
BKK is offering the tickets, available only in digital form, for HUF 530 for a 30-minute ticket and HUF 750 for a 90-minute ticket.
The company noted that the tickets allow travelers to complete any journey on a BKK vehicle that was started during the validity period, as far as the end station.
The tickets may be purchased using the BudapestGo mobile application or its predecessor, the FUTÁR app.
