LMP Urges Introduction of Budapest Congestion Charge

Local News

Opposition LMP has said it is high time to introduce a congestion charge in Budapest, arguing that deteriorating air quality in the city was costing “thousands of lives” a year.


“Inhabitants of downtown Budapest are paying for the comfort of motorists with their lungs,” according to LMP lawmaker Antal Csárdi. The charge would help to reduce traffic, he said, adding that the 5,000 forint (EUR 12.6) “climate pass” proposed by his party would give people access to all means of public transport in the city.
