Travel in Szeged

Trams, trolleys and buses

Szeged has four tram lines (1, 2, 3, 4), six trolley lines (5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 19), and many bus lines. As the conference locations are close to each other in the downtown (except for the Mihály Károlyi Student Hostel, which is near to the Rókus railway station and can be reached using tram lines #1 and #2), you might use these only when arriving, leaving or exploring the city.
Conference locations can be reached from the two train stations Nagyállomás and Rókus pályaudvar by tram #1 and #2. From the bus station you can also use tram lines #1 or #2 from the Rókusi Templom, or travel by a trolley or bus to the Széchenyi tér (where trams #1 and #2 are also available). Tickets can be purchased in kiosks, from ticket machines (320 HUF), or on the vehicles from the drivers (for cash) or mobile vending machines (with paypass cards) (400 HUF). For each journey (regardless how long) one ticket has to be validated. Or you can buy One-day travelcard ("napijegy" 1040 HUF), Three-day travelcard ("három napra szóló jegy" 2600 HUF), or One-week travelcard ("egyheti bérlet" 3850 HUF).

Szeged has three rings and many avenues. You can reach the inner ring (Tisza Lajos körút) from any avenue, but be cautious entering the downtown inside the inner ring: there are many traffic restrictions (one-way streets, dead-ends, etc.). There are many parking places in the downtown near the Aradi Vértanuk tere. Inside the middle ring (Nagykörút) and at some other places you have to pay for parking at the parking machines or by SMS on weekdays (mostly between 8:00 and 18:00 but check the signs), and for some places on weekends too.
