A good transport system and a fast and cheap transportation help the economical production.
Hungary is the meeting area of the west- east end the north-south transport system of the Carpathian-basin. So the transit traffic (átmenő forgalom) is considerable.
The Hungarian transport system needs development. So they build new-motorways
-navigable canals (hajózható csatorna)
I. truck (tehergépkocsi) transport
–it need not transhipment (átrakodás)
– it is appropriate for transport of mass goods (tömegtermékek)
People transport (személyszállítás):
I. coach-between cities and villages bus-between homes and workplaces
II. air transport-for long distances
Hungarian transport is radial built (sugaras szerkezetű) and it is extremely (túlzottan) Budapest centred.

-The busiest railway stations:
-Roads are not strong and wide enough for the extended traffic.
-Roads, which are internationally significant, are very crowded (zsúfolt).
-Highways and main roads are side by side the railways.->There are no opportunities to make new economical relations inside the country.
Navigation (vízi közlekedés):
-Navigation is only significant in external trade.-Rhine-Main-Danube canal
-The cheapest kind of transport, but it is slow.
-Significant traffic is only on the Danube.
-It has natural disadvantages:
-autumnal and wintry low tide (vízállás)
-ice drift (jégzajlás)
Reasons, why lost the watery transport its significance:
-Ships on the Danube are antiquated and there is no money for the development.
-The Danube and the Tisza flow side by side and there is no connection between them.
-This kind of transport develops the fastest.
-The fastest kind of transport, but it is expensive.
-It is economical only in the international transport.
-The name of the Hungarian airline is MALÉV.
-The busiest international airport is Budapest-Ferihegy.
