If you are in Szeged


Once in Szeged, the easiest way to get to the Foreign Students’ Secretariat or the accommodation is to catch a taxi. You can call several taxi companies (Tempo taxi: +36-62-490-490, Rádió taxi: +36-62-480-480 or +36-80-822-222 (toll-free number); Gábriel taxi +36-62-470-470).


Public transportation is relatively extensive, reliable and cheap. Fares can be paid on board; however, it is always cheaper if you purchase your ticket(s) in advance. If you travel without a validated ticket, you will be fined. Tickets are valid for one ride only; every time you change lines a new ticket must be validated. Tickets can be validated on board of trams and buses (punch slots). Daily, weekly and monthly passes are also available. Tickets and passes can be purchased at the main railway station, newsstands and public transportation booths.
