Debrecen lies on the No. 100 line of Budapest-Szolnok-Debrecen-Nyíregyháza-Záhony direction, not incidental therefore that this is one of the most developed railway junctions of the country. This provides the systematic and effective national and international railway transportation, as not only the major cities and towns are connected, put practically all inhabitations are integrated in the railway network. At the same time, Debrecen also enables international transportation by train to Romania, Ukraine and Slovakia as well. The MÁV (Magyar Államvasutak, Hungarian State Railway Company) supports the major lines with InterCity trains (fewer stops, shorter duration of travel, higher speed, and greater comfort), but fast and regular trains reach all parts of the region.

From Debrecen to Budapest and back at least 1 Inter City train per hour is available in each hour in the 6 h – 20 h period every day.
