Accessible Public Transport in Budapest

Special mention: Budapest among the best European cities

The European Commission presented the 2015 Access City Awards on the occasion of the European Day for People with Disabilities on 3 December 2014 in Brussels in the framework of the accessibility contest for the recognition of the best disability-friendly cities which took significant measures to make their cities accessible.

The Access City Award was established in 2010 to raise awareness of disability and to promote accessibility initiatives in European cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants.

Since 2010, the Access City Award has been given four times during which 189 cities have entered the contest.

In 2014, 62 cities applied for this award. Budapest was selected by the European Commission from among the best seven cities and was granted the special mention for its work in the field of transport.

The award was received last week by Ms Alexandra Szalay-Bobrovniczky, Deputy Mayor for Human Affairs and Dr Balázs Szeneczey, Deputy Mayor for City Development.
