First-quarter passenger transport volume in Hungary rose 69% year-on-year to 4.9 billion passenger-kilometers, but was still 27% under the volume in the same period in 2019, before the pandemic, Hungarian news agency MTI reports, citing data released by the Central Statistical Office (KSH).

Passenger transport volume by bus accounted for 49% of total passenger-kilometers, while rail made up 32% and air travel 19%.

The data do not include local transport.

The number of passenger-kilometers registered for local transport in Hungary rose 49% to 1.6 bln during the period. Public transport in the city of Budapest alone accounted for close to 1.2 bln of those passenger-kilometers.
