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.
