Public transport, taxi, bars and the most important attractions. Everything you need to know about Budapest.

Being in a new town is always challenging, but now that everyone has a smartphone in their pocket, it's a little bit easier. Now we collected 5 must-have applications, that makes your life easier while you're in Budapest.

Bkk futár

This is the official application of the Budapest Transport Center, and it's undoubtedly a must-have. The map shows all buses, trams, metros and trolleybuses in circulation, so we can see all of our opportunities to chose. By clicking on a stop on the map, you will see real-time departure information for upcoming vehicles as well as a timetable for stops. You can also plan your trip: just select the place where you want to go, and the application will show several opportunities to get there. The app shows all construction works, the replacement buses, and you can see if a bus is out of service, for example, so you won't wait clueless in a bus stop for long time. You can also see the nearby ticket vending points on the map.

My Budapest

Although My Budapest application looks a bit old-fashioned, it's one of the best in town. With a little exaggeration we can say that you will find everything you need to know about Budapest with this application. It shows all the restaurants and places to eat, offers a variety of entertainment options, shows cultural programs, and you won't be lost even if you're looking for a dentist, a doctor's office, a bank and / or ATM, or any shopping place or car rental. My Budapest shows all places on one map with unmistakable icons.


We can frequently hear about cheating taxi drivers, and in a new city we don't even know what are the opportunities, the companies and the realistic prices. Taxibudapest is an extremely handy application: it shows all the taxi companies of the city with prices, phone numbers and other details. You can book a car via the application, and it even shows the expected fee and the optimal route. It's really easy to reach all the taxi companies of the city directly from one application, and it's good to know the duration and cost of the trip in advance.
