Direct Bus Transport from Liszt Ferenc Airport, Budapest:

We have organize several buses between Budapest and Gyöngyös, for a cost of 9000 HUF/trip, roughly 29 EUR/transfer/person, after the first 32 participants  indicated their flight number, arrival and departure schedules at http://1drv.ms/1xt6BRx.

Each bus will leave from the Budapest Liszt Ferenc Airport, Terminal 2. They will wait for the flights listed below and a hostess will collect the participants of WPCF 2014 with a name table and a WPCF 2014 logo at hand.

In order to pay for the bus transfer (and in some smaller shops, cafes), we recommend that you either change Hungarian Forints (HUF) before your travel, or withdraw cash from one of the ATM's located at the arrival gates of the Liszt Ferenc Airport. The cost for the transfers will be 9000 HUF cash for each ride, which is equivalent to about 29 EUR or 35 CHF (it is more expensive than we estimated, as only 30% of the participants registered for this service). The bus first will take you to the conference registration site, then it will take you to your particular hotel in Gyöngyös.

An English speaking hostess and a Hungarian speaking driver will come with each transfer bus/car. Please pay to the hostess, in cash, upon arrival to the conference registration site defined in the subsequent news item below.
