Transportation is so easy in Budapest. Most things are within easy walking distance of each other but if you don't enjoy walking the metro trains and trams are excellent, regular and cheap - public transport as it should be. This site has lots of information about the transport network http://www.bkk.hu/en/
It will probably work out more expensive to get a 24 hour travel card than buy individual tickets, but the choice of tickets is confusing, and the price of the 24 hour card is reasonable. If there are 2-5 of you travelling together, you can also buy a 'group' travel card which is just twice the price of 1 card.
Most of the time you don't get checked at all, especially in the Metro. If this happens to you, and you are secretely thinking about travelling without buying a ticket, think again!!! Because sometimes someone near you suddenly puts on a 'ticket checker'-bracelet, and starts shouting at you for your ticket.. avoid that situation at all cost.
A great city and easy to get around.
