How To Use The Menetrendek.hu Bus Website

Find Local Bus Route Information - Visit Szeged Towns And Villages

On this web page you will find a small tutorial on how to find information about local buses that travel from the Mars Tér, Szeged bus terminal to an outer-city town such as Kecskemét or Forráskút using the menetrendek.hu bus website. The example below demonstrates finding information about Forráskút.

The reason for this small tutorial is because, at present, there is no English version of the menetrendek.hu website; which is a shame because all the important information is on it. And with more Hungarians making "Foreign" friends while living abroad Menetrendek and other important Hungarian companies, institutes, associations and organisations should no longer assume that only Hungarians want to travel to other cities, towns and villages from Szeged.

The SEARCH RESULTS

When the search results are displayed you will see a list of possible bus journeys that MIGHT match your specific search criteria. I say might because your journey's start point might not be what you entered.
