Cycle traffic in Budapest climbs 15% in 2020
Cycle traffic in the capital rose 15% last year, data from five counters installed by the Budapest Public Transport Centre (BKK) show, the Hungarian Cyclists' Club said on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Áron Halász, the club's deputy chairman, noted that cycle traffic in the month of December jumped between 29% and 95% year-on-year, depending on the location.
More than 1 million cyclists traveled on the Buda riverfront cycle path last year, making it the most popular in the city. A path connecting the city center with District XXI, on Csepel Island, in the south of the capital, showed the biggest increase in usage.
