Székesfehérvár is a city of county rank, the centre of Fejér County and a major city of Transdanubia. It lies halfway between Budapest and Lake Balaton.
The city plays a prominent transport-geographical role in the region, since it lies along the Pan-European transport corridor no V. It is also a significant railway junction, since the railway lines arriving from the directions of Budapest, Nagykanizsa, Szombathely, Komárom and as well as Sárbogárd converge here. The city has rail connections in eight railway directions. It is located at the junction of of the motorway M7 and main road no. 8 running towards to Veszprém.

The city fulfils a central role in the region from the economic, educational, business and cultural aspects as well. Being one of the main employment centres in Hungary, commuting towards Székesfehérvár is massive, from a catchment area of up to 50-100 km. The number of commuting students is also high, due to the high number of educational institutions. Due to the proximity of Budapest the number of daily trips between the two cities is also significant. The transit traffic of the town can also be stressed, especially owing to the increased tourist traffic towards Lake Balaton during the summer tourist season.

The local public transport service (41 bus lines) is operated by nationally owned bus operator KNYKK.
