Travel - What is the best way to travel from the airport Debrecen into the city?

The easiest way is to use a taxi (appr. 12-15€) and they are standing always in the airport. The other option is to use Airport buses, it costs 400HUF (appr. 1,20€/person). Here you can find the schedule: http://dkv.newline.hu/scheduledetail/?lang=hu#lm//Airport 1-2/V/0/huThis airport bus goes a bit rarerly, so I honestly suggest the taxi, this is more comfortable, and not so expensive for 4 people.
