Transport 

The main road 7 crosses the city center , and the M7 motorway also passes through its border , so these can be considered the most important road access routes in Martonvásár. From the south east, Ercsitől the 6204 road stretches far, Tordas and Gyúróra and the 81 108 No. Byway starts here.

The settlement is part of a smaller long-distance bus traffic to Székesfehérvár and Lake Balaton . Bus traffic between Martonvásár and Gyúró and Ercsi is frequent .

The city is located along the Budapest-Székesfehérvár railway line. There are frequent suburban trains to Martonvásár from Budapest , but there are also regular connections with Székesfehérvár – in smaller numbers with Siófok and Nagykanizsa .
