The bike-sharing scheme was relaunched with 800 vehicles in May after a six-month suspension.
More than 850,000 people used the service between May and September, compared to 652,000 when the scheme kicked off in 2014.
The number of registered users stands at 75,000, compared to 117,000 at the end of 2020, after seven years of operation.
The daily 9,000-10,000 rides puts Budapest ahead of cities such as New York and Barcelona, where bike-sharing schemes average six rides per day for every bicycle.
The BKK plans to expand the fleet by 30% this year, due to the strong demand.
