Budapest's Mol Bubi bike-sharing scheme, operated by the Budapest Public Transport Center (BKK) with the support of Hungarian oil and gas company MOL, is adding another 200 bikes to its fleet, BKK said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
BKK said it is also opening three new docking stations in the area of Budapest's City Park with support from Varosliget, the state-owned company in charge of transforming the park into a museums quarter.
The center noted that the Bubi scheme now has 2,260 bikes, up from 1,200 when the service was re-launched in the spring of 2021, and 183 docking stations.
BKK is planning to continuously expand the coverage and the size of the bike-sharing scheme this year. The Bubi service has been used by over 4.4m times since its relaunch.
