The changes include a 50% occupancy limit on Balaton destinations to ensure a safety distance of 1-1.5 meters between passengers. In addition to that, tickets can only be bought for a specific destination and with an additional surcharge to reserve a seat.

According to MÁV-Start, the passenger division of Hungarian State Railways,trains between Budapest and Lake Balaton have been operating on a reduced schedule due to the novel coronavirus measures; however, the switch to the pre-high season timetable (from May 30 until June 19) will allow for more frequent journeys.
