The introduction of the mobile tickets as part of the Budapest integrated fare collection electronic system (Fovarosi integralt viteldijbeszedesi elektronikus rendszer, FVR) is implemented by Nemzeti Mobilfizetesi in cooperation with the Budapest Transport Center (Budapesti Kozlekedesi Kozpont). Initially, only tickets for rides to the airport can be acquired.
As a pilot project from June 2019, the mobile ticket is first offered for airport shuttle bus 100E. Passengers can purchase the mobile ticket with the help of the app by the National Mobile Payment Plc. or its distributors anytime, anywhere, even while waiting at the stop.

Based on the service agreement between the National Mobile Payment Plc and BKK, no extra fees are charged for purchases in the app: the mobile ticket has the same price as the paper-based ticket.

The mobile ticket does not replace current paper tickets or passes, which are available as before, it is only an additional sales channel.
