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 190 bikes to its fleet, BKK said on Friday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

 Hungarian bicycle maker Csepel has been working at full capacity to deliver Bubi bikes which are being rolled out at docking stations, BKK said.  

This year, "several hundred" new bikes have been added to the Bubi fleet, and the service area has been expanded.

The number of daily Bubi rides was over 12,000 in June.
