Being the second biggest city in Hungary, Debrecen has a large variety of transportation. Two lines start from the Main Railway Station, line 1 runs to the University whereas line 2 runs to a residential area in the suburbs of Debrecen. The network was not always that small, 7 lines used to run in the 1950s.


5 lines run, mostly in the Eastern part of Debrecen, all of them depart from Segner Square. Tickets are valid for all tram, trolleybus, and bus lines and they are quite affordable. For tickets valid minimum 1 day, having a photo ID is a must (also to write the ID number on the ticket)!


60 lines, including 7 night lines numbered from 90 to 93, and 6 express lines (some with 1 daily departure) serve the city and the suburban neighborhoods. Surprisingly, you can go to Debrecen Airport with buses 'Airport 1' and 'Airport 2'.
