Public transport is cheap and well-spread around the city. In the last few years more than 500 new, environmentally friendly and air-conditioned buses were acquired by the public transport operators, and a new metro line (number 4), with a direct station at the University, called Fővám tér, was opened.
The area is served by tram lines (number 2, 47, 49) too, the station is called Fővám tér as well.
The taxi service in Budapest working at a regulated price, so it is perfectly safe and predictable to hail a licensed taxi across the city. You can pay also with credit card for the taxi.
You can find all the information on public transportation tickets and passes here. Single tickets and 24- or 72-hour travelcards are on sale at the airport, at railway and metro stations and at the dark purple ticket vending machines in several palces of the city. You can pay with cash or credit card as well at the machines. Additionally, single tickets are available from the driver onboard the bus at the driver, but at a higher price, and only for the exact amount of cash.
