Plans for new Danube riverboat service
Consortium Duna-Express plans to introduce passenger boat traffic on the Danube to link Budapest with outlying towns and suburbs, in 2014, CEO Sándor Götz announced.
A total of 28 river ports are planned to be used, 11 of which will be in Budapest.
New ports will be opened at Batthyány tér, F vám tér and at bridges on the M0 ring road.
The service will use catamarans designed, built and operated by a Hungarian company.
