in zone XIV, on condition that the line to be traveled does not pass through Budapest and Kelenföld.
It should be stated that the distance-traffic stations are always calculated to Budapest or from Budapest, and that, consequently, for the routes whose destination is beyond. Budapest or from Kelenföld the lines this side of and beyond Budapest are considered separate lines, for which the traveler should take two tickets, one good from the station of departure to Budapest and the other from Budapest to the point of destination. The rates to be paid for the different zones are fixed according to the table on page III.
The flag-stations at which tickets are not sold are not given on the time-tables. If the ticket is taken to or from one of these flag-stations the traveler pays in the first case the rate fixed for the station beyond, in the direction of the journey; in the second case the rate fixed for the preceding station.
The rate to be paid for the reciprocal traffic between flag-stations situated between two stations, or for the reciprocal traffic between a flag-station and the neighboring stations is equal to that fixed for the first zone of local traffic.
Every passenger who has a ticket of an inferior class can, if there are places unoccupied, travel in a compartment of superior class on payment of the difference in price.
The price of a ticket which has been purchased will be returned in the following cases only, viz.:
(a) Whenever it shall be impossible to give a passenger the place to which his ticket entitles him, and he refuses to accept a place in a car of inferior class. If a traveler who cannot obtain a place in a car of superior class to which he holds a ticket is content with an inferior class, he shall have a right to have the difference in price refunded.
(b) Whenever sickness or other cause shall make it impossible for anyone to travel in society or to continue
his journey already begun, he may demand that fractional part of the amount paid for the ticket, which corresponds to the unaccomplished part of his trip, and also the baggage charge.
(See Section 13 of Rules and Regulations for the Service.)
(c) Whenever the train for which a ticket is given does not complete its journey, or the train is delayed in its course, the passenger can demand the refunding of the portion of the fare corresponding to the unfinished portion of the journey. If a traveler whose ticket is stamped misses the train he has no right to have the cost of the ticket refunded, or to any indemnity whatever. If, however, he promptly presents his ticket to the station agent in order to have the time extended, his stamped ticket is good during the same or following day on another train, the rate of fare on which is not higher that of the missed train.
Travelers who, as soon as they enter the car, inform the conductor that, on account of a detention, they were unable to procure a ticket at the ticket office, will be obliged to pay an excess of 24 cents (60 kreutzers), including passenger tax and stamp.
The same excess will be charged every traveler who desires to take a longer journey than that to which his ticket entitles him. In this case the traveler should, before reaching the limit of the zone for which his ticket is good, inform the conductor of his intention to extend his journey. In default of this he will be considered-for the distance traveled beyond the limit-as a traveler without a ticket, and as such liable to a fine. The amount of this fine will be regulated by the following rules, viz. :
The traveler who is found en route without a ticket or who presents a worthless ticket, must pay double the regular fare for the whole distance he has already traveled. In case it is impossible to learn the station at which he took the train, double the regular fare for the entire distance already traveled by the train will be charged.
The fine shall never be less than $1.44 (3 fl. 60 kr.), inclusive of the fare and stamp.
The traveler who takes his place in a car of a class superior to that indicated by his ticket must pay double the difference between the rates of fare for the two classes for the entire distance traveled in the car of superior class. If it is not immediately learned at which station the passenger took the place in the car of superior class, he shall pay double the difference between the rates for the two classes for the distance traveled from the point of departure given on his ticket. If the ticket has been given at a station of a connecting line, double the difference between the rates of the two classes will be calculated for a distance whose starting point is the neighboring station of the connecting line. The minimum charge is fixed at $1.44 (3 fl. 60 kr.), including tax and stamp.
PARLOR CARS AND PRIVATE CARS.
Travelers can engage private cars on payment of the established charge therefore, if the cars are engaged half an hour before the departure of the train, unless at intermediate stations, at which twenty-four hours' notice must be given.
Tickets purchased to retain an entire car should be stamped "coupee," and the holder of said ticket is obliged to show them at the request of the railway company; failing to do this the conductor may assign to other passengers the unoccupied places in the aforesaid car.
In order to obtain a private car the traveler must take as many first class tickets good for that train as there are places in the car. No larger number of passengers can occupy a private car than are provided with first class tickets. Each passenger additional to the number of first class places must be provided with a first-class ticket.
Parlor cars are furnished only on special order of the management. The rates for parlor cars are fixed for each car separately. The rate, which will be equal to the cost
of from six to ten first class tickets, is regulated by the size and accommodations of the respective cars.
Whenever the number of persons who desire to occupy a private car shall exceed the number of tickets purchased, comformably to the preceding arrangement, as many first class tickets good for the kind of train shall be purchased as there are additional persons in the car.
For the use of a separate compartment of the first or second class, as many tickets good for the class of compartment and the kind of train shall be taken as there are places in the compartment.
Separate compartments can be engaged on payment of the charge therefor half an hour before the departure of the train if the station is a railroad terminus, or twentyfour hours if an intermediate station. Berths and separate compartments in sleeping cars, if any are to be had, can be engaged on the same terms.
Only as many passengers can occupy a special compartment as there are available places in the compartment.
Any person who, on account of illness or other reason, cannot travel in ordinary passenger cars, can on payment of the price of six first class tickets travel with his nurse in a closed freight car in which his bed may be placed. A third class ticket must be taken for each additional attendant traveling in the same car. Articles for the comfort of the invalid during the journey, and which the attendants should themselves procure and take charge of, will be placed free of charge in the invalid's car; the other baggage will be charged for at the regular rates.
Hospital cars can be engaged twenty-four hours before the departure of the train by making a deposit of $2.00 (5 fl.), which will be deducted from the cost of conveyance payable before the departure of the train.
