Deák Ferenc tér, Ferenciek tere Metro Stations Opening Today
The Ferenciek tere and Deák Ferenc tér stations of metro line three will be opened for passenger traffic in the early afternoon on Monday, the Budapest Transport Center (BKK) announced last week.
It said it will now be possible to travel by metro between Kőbánya-Kispest and Deák Ferenc tér.
According to the information, on the day of the handover, January 23, replacement buses will run from the Göncz Árpád city center to Kálvin tér until 9:00 p.m., after that, trains will run according to the usual evening traffic schedule all the way to Kőbánya-Kispest.
The renovation of metro line M3 started back in November 2017 with the renovation of the northern section. The completion of these works was estimated for the end of 2018, but passenger services between Újpest-központ and Lehel tér stations resumed only in March 2019. The southern section was completed in October 2020. The modernization of the middle section (between Lehel tér and Nagyvárad tér stations) started before the southern section was handed over at the end of 2019 and has been ongoing since then.
Under normal circumstances, approximately half a million people travel on the M3 line on weekdays, making it the busiest public transport route in Hungary.
