Construction and Transport Minister János Lázár said a fare reform plan for state-owned train and bus group MÁV-Volán had been presented at a cabinet meeting in a post on social media on Thursday, state news wire MTI reports.

Lázár said the aim was to allow travel free of charge to Hungarians over 65 and under 14.

The fare system would also be changed to benefit vulnerable social groups as well as teachers and healthcare workers, he added.

The proposal will be discussed again at a cabinet meeting on December 19, Lázár said.
