Another 15 buses due to start running on the streets of the city in March will be equipped with the filter as well.
The new technology protects passengers and drivers during the pandemic, the BKV emphasised.
Manufacturer EvoBus installed the filters free of charge.
The BKV has been hard hit by the pandemic, with many workers infected or quarantined.
As a precaution, the front seats of more than 300 buses and trolleybuses have been cordoned off, so passengers cannot sit there.
Also, for the safety of drivers, on-site ticket sales are still not possible.
All doors on buses open at each stop to facilitate ventilation.
The use of masks covering the mouth and nose is still mandatory on all BKV vehicles and at stops.
