The special Santa Claus tram runs on the route of 2A tram on the Pest side wharf between 4-9 December.

Although Santa Claus (Joulupukki) is really busy these days he had some time to travel on the first tram on 4 December with children who have difficult living conditions. From 4 December afternoon you can travel a week long by the Santa Claus tram from Boráros Square to Jászai Mari Square. There’s no doubt that both kids and adults will find travelling by Santa tram a joyful programme.
The vehicle is decorated inside and outside with Santa ornaments. What is more, maybe if you miss the Santa tram you’ll find it worth to wait a little bit more in the cold, just to get on this special shiny and funny tram.
Santa tram runs until 9 December within the timetable of tram 2A, hence it can be used with normal BKV tickets and monthly tickets.
