Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, is facing a series of challenges in the field of transport and mobility: an increasing number of cars, lack of high-capacity roads which make it possible to avoid the city for through-traffic, lack of an extended high-capacity local public transport network (e.g. subway, suburban railway) and growing sub-urbanisation.
Altogether, this causes increasing car traffic along with all of its negative effects such as noise and pollution.
Budapest is involved in the EU project CATCH-MR.
