Metrans starts new connection Hungary-Romania

Arad terminal Afluent

Starting from Friday 15 October, Metrans starts a new roundtrip service between Budapest and Arad in Romania. The service will run three times a week and is a regular line on the timetables.

The new connection links the Metrans terminal in the capital of Hungary with the Afluent terminal in Arad, which lies near the border with Hungaria. Metrans has partnered up with the Afluent terminal as it was receiving an “increasing number of requests for an expansion of METRANS activities in Romania”.

Regular trips

Trains will depart the terminal in Budapest on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, while in the other direction they leave Arad on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

We are looking forward to further increase our common cooperation through this route.”
