Public transport in Nyíregyháza is provided by a network of 48 bus routes. In the city centre, buses run frequently and at regular intervals, typically from half past 4 in the morning to half past 10 at night, according to passenger demand.
On the busiest trunk routes, services run every 10 minutes on weekdays during peak hours, every 20-30 minutes off-peak, and every 30-60 minutes on weekends and evenings on average, with a split into several branches on the outer parts: routes that differ from the basic route are usually indicated by a letter (e.g. Y) after the route number on the bus displays. Inserted services, i.e. services that do not run the whole route, are indicated by an 'A'.
Routes No 90 (between Nos 90 and 96) are used to serve industrial areas and plants in accordance with the shift changes.
The "H" services (H31, H32, H35, H40) are used to serve the outer areas and bush farms. For the entire length of these routs, only an outbound full line ticket is valid. From the bus station to the outer boundary you can buy an inner area season ticket, from the outer boundary to the outer terminus you can buy an outer area single line season ticket.
Most of the bus lines in Nyíregyháza depart from three major terminals and travel outwards via the city centre to their external terminals. These three main terminals are the Railway Station, the Bus Station and the Örökösföld. In addition, there are several other terminals in Jósaváros and at the hospital on Sóstói út.

Bus stops are always indicated by a blue bus " Uniform Rules concerning Road Traffic Management " sign, below which is a sign with the name of the given stop.
At each stop in the city, the bus route timetable for that stop is displayed on the stop column. These notices show the departure of the bus* from the stop in question.
At the top of the notice you will find the number/sign of the line or family of lines, the name of the stop and the destination.
On the left, vertically, you can see a list of stops on the line - in the direction of travel from top to bottom. The current stop is highlighted, the previous stops are greyed out. The average travel time to subsequent stops (which is average, i.e. less at weekends or late at night, and more at peak times) is calculated from the current stop to the next stop.
Depending on the timetable characteristics of the lines, the departure times of the buses are listed in a table with different breakdowns (teaching day, teaching break, weekend, Saturday, Sunday), where the departure minutes are arranged in a row per hour.
Any lettering behind each departure time indicates a deviation from the basic route. These are explained at the bottom of the notice.
*Currently, for H lines, the old-style notices are still displayed at the stops, showing the departure times of the buses/coaches from the final stop, to which you need to add the time value displayed next to the stop list to get the departure time from that stop.
You can find timetables for all lines on the website, and you can also download timetable announcements for each stop by selecting the stop of the line you are interested in.
