Real-Time Trams in Budapest
Hungarian map portal Utcakereso has now added the option to view the locations of live buses, subway trains and trams in Budapest. Utcakereso is an OpenStreetMap based mapping portal to Hungarian addresses, businesses and real-estate property. The site now includes the option to view BKV (the Budapest public transit system) vehicles moving in real-time.
The live public transit option allows you to click on the animated vehicles on the map to view their estimated times of arrival at their next scheduled stops. When you select a vehicle's marker the vehicle's route is also highlighted on the map. You can also click on stations and bus-stops to view which lines they service.
