More than 4,000 people registered to use Mol Bubi in April, after the monthly usage fee for the capital’s bike sharing system was reduced to a token 100 forints (EUR 0.3), the Budapest Public Transport Centre (BKK) said on Thursday.
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 3,000,000 trips and travelled some 6,000,000 kilometres.
The system now operates with 2,071 bicycles and 157 docking stations in a 40-square-kilometre area in the centre of the capital.
Mol Bubi is a partnership between BKK and Hungarian oil and gas company MOL.
