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/was involved in the EU projects CATCH-MRCH4LLENGE, FLOW, NODESSTARS, SUMPS UP, TIDE and SUNRISE.
