Budapest - FAV

The first metro line built on the European mainland is the Földa­latti Vasút (FAV) which opened its doors in 1896. This line was, from the start, a big transportation success, but had to wait for its extension until 1973. That year, the line was closed down for six months, renovated and extended to a total of 4.9 kilometres. Today, the Budapest system consists of three lines. Line 2 consists of 10.1 kilometres of track and opened its stations in 1970 respectively 1972. Line 3 is the newest line. It has a total length of 12.5 kilometres, the first part opened in 1976, and then gradually expanded in 1980, 1981, 1984 and 1990 respectively. The Budapest system has come to a total length of 31.7 kilometres of track, 42 stations, and 562 vehicles.
