The government of Hungary is set to meet the Budapest Municipal Council’s deadline for making a resolution regarding the necessary replacement buses for the M3 metro line’s renovations, Cabinet Chief János Lázár said on Klubradio last night, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.

"The government is happy to help with material instruments, too," Lázár said. "Technical negotiations" are currently ongoing, and the final determination will be published in the official gazette by Tuesday, he said.

The Mayor of Budapest, István Tarlós, said yesterday that the city would purchase replacement buses if the government does not guarantee by midnight on Tuesday that it will cover the additional costs to contract bus services instead of buying them.

Around 150 buses are necessary to replace service on the M3 metro line during the renovation, which has an estimated cost of roughly HUF 140 billion and is expected to begin in November.
