Govt Committed To Hungarian-Made Buses
Regarding the upgrade of Budapest’s third metro line, János Lázár, the government office chief, reiterated the cabinet would ensure that replacement buses needed during the upgrade would be sourced from Hungarian bus manufacturers. But the government will stay true to its word and cover any extra costs that would arise from buying Hungarianmade buses.

“Although it may cost the capital more to buy Hungarian buses, in the end it will benefit the national economy,” Lázár said.

The start date of the metro upgrade is not up to the government, he said, adding that there were no financial obstacles to starting the renovation.

Lázár added, however, that he thought it unlikely that the upgrade would start this year. He said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will meet Budapest Mayor István Tarlós on Friday to discuss the metro upgrade.
