The E4 trans-European walking route cuts right across Hungary, and unlike some of its neighbours, Hungary is meticulous about signposting, so even if the tricky Hungarian Language is an insurmountable maze of grammar, you will not need it to follow the colour-coded sign on trees and markers.

First-time payment can be by bank card at touchscreen machines (about half of the stations), or via prepaid card which you must pre-register for. Rental starts free for the first 30 minutes, then increases every additional half hour.
