An EU-funded four-year project to modernise the public transport in Szeged, Hungary’s fourth largest city, has now been finished.

The project, which began in 2008, included the extension and upgrade of existing tram lines, which involved adding two new lines and modernising the 1, 3, and 4 tram services. Szeged’s improved tram network now spans a length of 18.3 km.

The city’s trolleybus network has also been updated and now features a total of eight lines. Both networks received new air-conditioned and easily accessible vehicles.
