In addition, Line 1 will finally be extended over the Rákóczi bridge, which was built in 1995, and through the Buda side of the Hungarian capital towards Fehérvári út via Szerémi út and Hengermalom út.

Meanwhile Hungary's minister of transport has also signed a document giving the government's backing for Budapest Transport Company (BKV) to acquire up to 100 new low-floor LRVs. This document is required for the EU funding application for the new vehicles, which will be ordered in several batches.
