Accessibility in transportation in the Capital
Virtually all of the important sights are accessible by public transportation in Budapest. However, it is worth planning the trip thoroughly. Trams No. 4 and 6 have a barrier-free design, and most buses in the city centre are also barrier-free with low floors. Elevators are available at each station of the newest Metro Line 4.
Access to the trams poses no problems, but you should let the driver know your need in case of the buses. You can find detailed information about barrier-free public transportation on the website of the Budapest public transport company, and you can also plan a barrier-free route in the city using the BKK Futár mobile application.
Hearing-impaired people can use the video sign language interpreter service at the BKK Customer Centre on Ferenciek tere. At the Customer Centre, a tablet is available to call a sign language interpreter, who translates online between the customer using sign language and the BKK employee communicating orally.
Numerous junctions in Budapest are equipped with traffic lights with a sound alert indicating when crossing the road is possible. Some of these do not operate during the night, or operate at a lower volume, in order to prevent them from disturbing residents living nearby.
