By the mid-1960s, there were already 130 types of tickets for transport companies in the capital. The system was non-transparent, and the companies had much less revenue from tickets than the cost of operating the system. Therefore, a new fare system was introduced in Budapest on 1 July 1966, which has actually survived to this day.

Renovation of the section began in April 2019 and was completed recently. Four stations of the line have been rebuilt. Its tunnels renewed, the track network, signals and safety systems modernised, alongside passenger information and other electrical systems. The renovated metro section will be opened to the public at 5 pm on 22 October. Following the opening the metro will again run the full length of the line but not stop at its central stations: Semmelweis klinikák, Corvin Negyed, Ferenciek tere and Arany János utca.

A government decree recently published in the official Hungarian Gazette allows planning of over three thousand P+R parking spaces and storage for at least two thousand B+R bicycles to begin this year. The hope is that the improved facilities will encourage people living in the Budapest agglomeration to travel into the city centre by train or suburban railway and contribute to a reduction in traffic.
