The Centre for Budapest Transport (Budapesti Közlekedési Központ) is going to set up seventy-five, brand-new MOL Bubi collection points around the city of Budapest. For more information, continue reading this article.
In preparation for the newly arriving MOL Bubi stations around the city, the company is launching a public consultation. This consultation will help the company assess what areas proposed for development have the greatest demand for public bicycle services, reports Index.
The Mayor of Budapest, Gergely Karácsony, for over a year now, has made great efforts in the revival of MOL Bubi. As Karácsony commented in the past, the service will extend to the Újbuda region next. Karácsony also noted that the use of the service is exponentially growing day by day, as seen in the number of people utilising the service to travel around Budapest.
According to a statement sent to the editorial team of Index, the Centre for Budapest Transport (BKK) will be launching a public consultation. This consultation will discuss the next possible locations where the MOL Bubi service could expand.
Soon, seventy-five, brand-new MOL Bubi collection points will be open to the public. BKK is now asking their customers where they would like to see more of these stations. The public transport company regularly assesses their service feedback. This will be true for the new bicycle stations as well; the company is going to listen to the public’s opinion regarding the announcement. MOL Bubi users will soon be asked to indicate where they would like to see the bicycle service appear in the capital. Users will be able to mark such locations on a map. Furthermore, BKK is going to initiate a survey. This survey will help the company measure customer transportation habits through a questionnaire.
BKK is likely planning to situate the new MOL Bubi stations around the busiest parts of Budapest. This is because the Budapest Transportation Centre is aiming to make the cycling service available to as many people as possible. This will consequently allow more citizens to use the service and travel by bike. The combination of traditional public transport and the use of bikes around the capital is expected to make traffic more predictable, healthy, and speedy. More MOL Bubi collection points will only make this process more efficient.
The development will also take several factors into account. Expect to see new stations where
