    N.B.: Every time you board a public transportation vehicle you must validate a ticket. One ticket costs HUF 350 and can be bought at each metro entrance from a ticket vending machine or from the cashiers. If you validate a ticket on the metro line, it remains valid for 60 minutes regardless of transfers from one metro line to another. Once the travel is interrupted (you get out of the metro system), the ticket loses its validity, even if it is within the 60-minute time limit.
