Passenger costs have been reduced by improving the efficiency of public transport companies, simplifying organisational structures and cutting the number of managers, thus changes to neither railway tariffs nor road tolls are planned from January.
Hungary’s government has not changed basic public transport tariffs since it came to power, the ministry noted. Hungarian consumers paid 4.0% more for rail travel in October compared to the same month a year earlier, according to Central Statistical Office (KSH) data calculated using the classification of individual consumption by purpose (COICOP) nomenclature.
The increase may be explained by a supplementary charge introduced earlier this year for some fast trains.
