The public transport will be free in Budapest Hungary on The European Car Free Day (No-Cars Day) 22nd of September. If you are or will be here you do not have to buy daily BKV ticket for that day. The Mayor of Budapest city - Gabor Demszky decided to introduce a no-cars day on September 22nd. On September 22nd all passengers will ride public transport means in Budapest operated by BKV Rt. free of charge. Andrassy ut will be closed to car traffic all day long on September 17 and 22 to show the general public that it is in the common interest to make Budapest a liveable city with fewer cars on its streets, he proclaimed. So keep in mind if you want to go to the Famous Heroes Square by car you need to chose other way than the Andrassy alley. The Metro (Subway) line 1 (yellow one) can bring you to the square under the Andrassy ut at ease.
