Car Rental
Our company is based in Budapest and we colleagues all live in Budapest. We can tell you for sue: the city is heavily polluted. This is due to the vast number of cars on the road, rising by about 20 000 each year. Many people have moved out to the agglomerate in the past years, but the railway or metro routes have not been developed so quickly, so going to work by car is the only option for many.

Every year, according to the environmental provisions, Budapest should not have more than 35 days when the pollution exceeds the health limits. In 2005, Budapest had 163 such days. In other large cities of the world, cars are constantly pushed out of the city centers in order to free up the inner streets of the gas exhaust and give way to walking and biking. No such trend yet in Budapest, and the city ring M0, which would be able to take the heavy truck traffic off the back of the city, has not been completed for several years. | Contact us
