The renovations are an extremely necessary move, as the condition of the decades-old trains has deteriorated significantly over time, with numerous incidents of subway cars stalling or even catching on fire.

Budapest’s M3, the “blue” subway line, was opened to the public in 1976. The line reached its current length of 17.3km in 1990. This is the busiest metro line, with half a million passengers daily in the capital. The line connects the northern and southern parts of the city, and is also the metro line that runs closest to Budapest’s Ferenc Liszt International Airport.

He also said that the refurbishment of subway cars is not the only part of renovations to the M3 line, that these will continue this year.

After his talk, Mayor Tarlós received a model of the refurbished train from Metrovagonmash head Boris Bogatiryev, who said that that his company has sent 300 train cars to Budapest since the 1970s. He also expressed his joy that the renovation work was undertaken by Metrovagonmash.
