Saturday, August 8, 2015

The first transit zone has been opened to migrants in an underpass near Eastern Railway Station in Budapest today.

Budapest city officials informed the press that the city provides vital public health services for migrants that choose to spend the nights in the transit zone.

The first occupants have already moved in the area said city official György Pető who emphasized that the city can't magically get rid of migrants preventing them to sleep on sidewalks and public parks. By creating transit zones the city aims to reduce the presence of illegal immigrants in various public areas across the city.

Drinking water, sanitary facilities, mobile toilets as well as buses that run between railway stations are available for migrant for free.

Budapest Transport Company launched two unused city buses to transport migrants between railway stations from 8 am to 11 pm. The buses are disinfected daily.

Budapest Public Area Maintenance company disinfects the transit zone area every other day by using chlorine disinfectants and wet technology said Pető.
