BKV Bus 200E to Köbánya-Kispest metro: Bus 200E runs between the underground terminus at Kőbánya-Kispest (the end of line M3) and Ferihegy Airport Terminal 2.
Route: Ferihegy Airport Terminal 2 (stops halfway between 2A & 2B on the arrivals level) - Határõr Igazgatóság - Repülõtér, D porta - Ferihegy Old Terminal 1 (across the road from) - Csévézõ utca - Felsõcsatári út - Kőbánya-Kispest Metro Station. From the Kőbánya-Kispest station you need another ticket for the metro (HUF 350) to take into you town. The best place to get off is probably Deák tér (15-20 mins), where all 3 underground lines meet, and which serves as a interchange for trams and buses. On arrival at Kőbánya-Kispest station just follow signs for the bus stop.

By Taxi:
General:

Taxis are available from the airport at the taxi stand. There is only one taxi company allowed to pick up passengers from this airport, and that is currently Főtaxi. Contact: Tel 2 222 2222 or www.fotaxi.eu/.

For your security: DO NOT TAKE any taxi than official Főtaxi or any other company called by phone. There are some people in the arrival exit gate that offer unofficial taxi services. Be aware and for your security do not use they services

Approximate Costs: To the city centre (Pest) ~HUF 7000/25 mins. To Buda ~HUF 8000.
Notes from a Traveller November 2013: Base fare: HUF 450, then HUF 280 per km and HUF 70 per minute waiting. So for example: from BUD Airport to Buda (Batthyány square) it is about 23km: It is HUF 450 + HUF 23x280 + waiting. so it is 6890 plus waiting. Every Taxi company has to use this price. So if a traveller gets into a taxi in Budapest and knows the distance, he can calculate the price. There are no fixed prices any more in Budapest. Public trasport is a lot cheaper and it is very good in Budapest!

Notes from a Traveller: November 2013: It is very convenient to go by train to BUD Airport T1, where you can change to Bus 900 at night or Bus 200 by day, to go to T2. The train departs from Nyugati Pályaudvar (West train station). Many trains stop at Ferihegy station (BUD Airport T1) where you can change to bus to go to T2). It is the fastest way to go to the Airport by public trasport. The other way is to go by M3 Metro to Kobanya-Kispest and then change to Bus 200 but it is very slow, because the M3 metro is very slow. I always use train bus as it is really fast. BUT be careful! Snow may interrupt the train service. If this happens you should go by metro. But in normal weather the train is the best.
May 2012: Trains stop at Terminal 1 and Budapest Airport plans to set up shuttle bus service from Terminal 2 to the train station which is still the cheapest way to reach the city.
