We need to take the train from Budapest to Egers on a Sunday morning returning to Budapest on a Tuesday morning in order to get to the airport to catch our plane back to the US. First, do the trains tend to be on time or should we allow a fair amount of extra time in the schedule to be sure we arrive on time? Would it be better to take a bus?
Also, the Rick Steves' Budapest book says that Eger is connected to the nearby junction town of Fuzesabony by frequent InterCity (speedier) trains (13/day, 17 minutes.) Would it be better to take this faster train to Fuzesabony and then transfer to the Egers local train?
Thanks for your help!
