The most frequently used metro line in Budapest, M3, is to cease operation for two days on 13-14 August. Budapest Transport Company (BKK) advises passengers to check out updates on the operation of the capital’s public transport before taking the metro.
Even though you can use the M3 metro line from 15 August, it will commute irregularly. Therefore, telex.hu made its schedule transparent until 20 August.
The M3 metro line will be out of operation between Kőbánya-Kispest and Újpest-központ metro stations. However, you may use metro replacement buses throughout the entire line.
The M3 metro line will restart operation between Kőbánya-Kispest and Kálvin Square. However, it will not stop at Nagyvárad Square. Between the Kálvin Square and Újpest-központ metro stations, you can jump on a metro replacement bus. Furthermore, the M30 station replacement bus will transport passengers to Nagyvárad Square.
The metro will operate between Kőbánya-Kispest and Kálvin Square metro stations. In addition, it will also commute between the Göncz Árpád Városközpont and Újpest-központ metro stations. However, it will still not stop at Nagyvárad Square. Between Kálvin Square and the Göncz Árpád Városközpont, you may use the M3 metro replacement bus. Between the Nyugati Pályaudvar and the Göncz Árpád Városközpont metro stations, the M3A replacement bus will also be an option.
The M3 metro will only commute between the Göncz Árpád Városközpont and the Újpest-központ metro stations. Kőbánya-Kispest and Göncz Árpád városközpont metro station will be connected by the M3 metro replacement bus only.
The metro will commute on the entire line except for Nagyvárad Square.
Based on the plans, the reconstruction works affecting the M3 metro line are due to finish by spring 2023. Therefore, major and minor modifications in the operation will last only half a year.
BKK, Budapest’s transport company, recommends passengers download and use their BudapestGO application. The app calculates optimal routes by using real-time traffic information. Furthermore, you can buy your ticket or a season ticket on the app as well.
