Travelling in Budapest with public transportation isn't always easy. Everybody has a story about being late from something important, or not knowing which route to take to get there. The information provided by Budapesti Közlekedési Központ (Centre for Budapest Transport) has gotten better over the years, but there are still times, when the information channels of the company doesn't work properly, which always causes insecurity in the travelling public.

With this thesis and the application related to this thesis I tried to provide another, more reliable channel to get the information closer to the travelling public. With this application, hopefully they will be able to align themselves in the labyrinth of the public transportation of Budapest. The Budapesti Közlekedési Központ provides standardized data of the timetables of the public transport flights, which I used to create a Windows Phone 8.1 application, which processes this timetable data and provides a user-friendly way of presenting this data. I added some extra features for increased usability.

In the finished application the user can browse the timetable data and put them into the favorites. The application provides data of unexpected events and sudden flight changes too. The application can provide routing features between two parts of Budapest.
