MTI-Hungary Today 2021.11.29.

The first tram train in Hungary, linking the cities of Hódmezővásárhely and Szeged, started operation at 4.30am on Monday.

János Lázár, the region’s MP and government commissioner for transport investments, said the train took 35 minutes between the two city centres, “and contributes to Hungary being one of the best places in central Europe.”

Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics said the next tram train is planned to connect Debrecen in east Hungary and Nagyvárad (Oradea) in Romania, “giving the investment a relevance in policy for Hungarians beyond the borders.”
