Direct rail link to airport would benefit Budapest, study says
A direct rail link between Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport and Kőbánya-Kispest, the southern terminus of metro line 3, would make the capitalʼs airport more accessible from Budapest as well as from other big cities around the country, a feasibility study has found, business daily Világgazdaság reported today.
The line would not only be accessible from the M3 terminus, the daily notes, but also from big cities such as Debrecen and Szeged, avoiding a trip into the center of the capital, the Ministry of National Development was reported as saying.
According to the ministry, the project would involve the upgrade of an existing rail line between the M3 terminus and Monor, southeast of the capital, that would circle around the airport, Hungarian news agency MTI reported. Currently, travelers who want to use public transport to reach the airport must take the metro and then a bus, or a train and then a bus, MTI noted.
