Some 750 young Hungarians can get a free European train pass as part of the new eighth tender of the European Union's DiscoverEU program, European Parliament (EP) member István Ujhelyi said at a press conference broadcast on his Facebook page.
Ujhelyi said that 18-year-olds could apply for passes from Wednesday.
In this year's "first round," those born between July 1, 2004, and June 30, 2005, can apply on the program's official website until noon on March 29.
Ujhelyi, the DiscoverEU mentor within Erasmus, said that so far, 212,000 passes have been distributed among the 916,000 young Europeans who applied.
