Free public bike pumps in Budapest
The inaugural launch of the free of charge public bike pump system of the Municipality of Budapest took place at Liszt Ferenc square in the 6th District. The aim of the project was to support the everydays of the city’s cycling community and the bicycle transport.
The bike infrastructure of Budapest has gone through a significant improvement in the recent period, since surveys show that for the past 20 years the bicycle traffic within the city has increased tenfold. In favour of supporting the promotion of urban bike transport and as a new measure, the Municipality of Budapest has installed a free of charge outdoor bike pump system. The precise location of the stations can be found on www.enbudapestem.hu/terkep.
Additional 10 pumps are expected to be installed this summer, in different busy public spaces of Budapest.
