HEV Trains, otherwise known as suburban trains, this railway system is designed more for locals than for travelers and tourists, but there are some lines you might want to consider. The Szentendre train (Line 5) as its shown in Budapest rail map, runs from Batthyány tér to Szentendre, a small town on the bank of the Danube river which gives you a taste of Hungarian living. This line also includes a stop at Aquincum, an ancient Roman city in Budapest that you might want to visit in order to see some of the ruins and historic architecture in the area. Another great option is the line which runs from Örs Vezér tere to Gödöllo (Line 8), as Gödöllo is a popular little baroque village which houses the royal Gödöllo Palace and was one of Queen Elizabeth favorite residences.
The underground railway network is less extensive, including two full-sized metros (red M2, running roughly east-west and blue M3, north-south as its shown in Budapest rail map) utilizing Soviet technology, and the MFAV (or Földalatti), a small-sized underground tramway, which is over 100 years old. A third full-sized metro (M4) should be completed by 2011, as well as a high speed rail link to Ferihegy BUD international airport, which is currently served by bus from the end of the M3 metro line. In 2005 a "BEB" monthly pass was introduced for a 10% extra cost over the regular price, which permitted the use of the MÁV national railway lines within the city area, effectively increasing the tracked service for BKV passengers. Since 2009, all monthly (and 15-day) passes, now called a "Budapest Pass", are valid on the national railway and suburban bus lines within city boundaries.
Both M2 and M3 lines are served by 5- or 6-carriage trains of Soviet origin. These Mitisin Factory-built metro vehicles are noisy, consume too much electricity and show a lot of wear after 25+ years of service. Nine trains were refurbished from 2000 to 2003 but this did not significantly improve passenger comfort. BKV bought 37 Alstom Metropolis for the M2 and M4 lines as its mentioned in Budapest rail map. There are some problems about the delivery, and at March 2010, BKV CEO István Kocsis declared that BKV may cancel the contract with Alstom because of so many delays and problems (at M2 the new carriages should serve since February 2009, but they are not yet). In July 2011 the new trains are still not in service but the contract could not be cancelled because that could have meant losing EU funding thus a modified contract was signed after some renegotiations and legal dispute over calling back the advance payment. 43 carriages were withdrawn from service, including all but one complete refurbished trains because of a misunderstanding (they are one to two years older than unrefurbished trains, but of a much better state of repair).
