New bus lanes in Budapest

In Budapest, several bus lanes have been created in 2013, for which CAAG has been campaigning for quite some time. Among others a 3,4 km long bus corridor has been built between Rákosmente and the city center. The bus corridor is used by 11 bus lines of BKV (Budapest Public Transport Company) and also by buses of Volán (regional public transport company). Altogether there is 67 thousand persons using these bus lines daily, as there is no tramway connection between these parts of the city. The new bus corridor can reduce the time of traveling between Rákoskeresztúr and Örs vezér square up to 20 minutes.
