MÁV said the package it plans to sell includes some 192,000 fines issued to 52,000 passengers in 2013-2014. Most of the fines are between HUF 10,000 and HUF 50,000, but one fare evader owes HUF 7.2 million, it added.

MÁV-Start fined fare dodgers about HUF 120 mln in the first half of this year. About 50 million of those fines have already been paid.
