„From 15 November 2015 winter operation applies to the MOL Bubi public bike-sharing system" – says official homepage of MOL Bubi. „During this period, a lower number of bikes will be available in the system, however BKK will track the proportion of bike hires even during wintertime and will define number of bikes operable in the system proportionally to the rate of bike use. During the wintertime, the full technical checks of the bikes and the necessary repairs will be carried out in order that the original number of the apple-green MOL Bubi bikes could be available again next spring at the docking stations."

Trendy bike sharing system helps to draw attention to the significance of multimodal ways of transport, popularise bike and community transport, and thus contributes to help Budapest to become a more liveable city.
