Abstract

The borders of the agglomerations can be located by the administrative units, but these limitations do not reflect the borders of functional spaces. The aim of this paper is to show and apply a special locating method by the example of Budapest. The main idea is the motorway effect (the shortest way is generally not the quickest) applied to passenger railway traffic. The travellers of the agglomeration towards cities far from the capital have a choice: going back to the centre and take a direct fast train or take a stop-train for getting to the first station out of the agglomeration where fast trains stop. We can terminate the settlements from where the return is quicker. This boundary can be perceived as the limit of the gravitational space of the main city.
