History

The first trolleybus line in Budapest was 2.7 km long and opened on 16th December 1933. It closed in wartimes and was not rebuild after the war. The route startes in Óbuda, from the Vörösvári út terminus (today tram terminus of routes 1 &17) and the trolleybuses reached the Cemetry in 8 minutes
