More than 4,000 people registered to use MOL Bubi in April, after the monthly usage fee for the capitalʼs bike-sharing system was reduced to a token HUF 100, the Budapest Public Transport Center (BKK) said, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
More than 100,000 people are now registered to ride MOL Bubi bikes, BKK said. Around 7,000-8,000 people use the system regularly, it added.
Since the system was launched in the autumn of 2014, MOL Bubi riders have taken more than 3 million trips and traveled some 6 million kilometers.
The system now operates with 2,071 bicycles and 157 docking stations in a 40-square-kilometer area in the center of the capital.
MOL Bubi is a partnership between BKK and Hungarian oil and gas company MOL.
