For me speed comes naturally after I've played a song hundreds of times. Different songs will require different patterns that your fingers might not yet be used to. So repetition is key.

Even without a piano you could try practicing rolling your fingers (pinky, ring, middle, index and repeat), then reverse it, or try different patterns.

I like to practice different finger patterns if I'm stuck in a boring situation where there is no escape.

Scales are good. Try the chromatic scale (all black and white keys up an octave, then down an octave), start slow then get faster.

This may seem a little strange, but playing slower, even painfully slower, will help with your speed. It's not a matter of getting faster. It's getting the mechanics down so your fingers can move easily. Focus on technique, not speed, and you'll notice the speed coming. I like to work Hanon exercises to build more flexibility and speed. My goal isn't to play them as fast as I can, it's to play as fast as I can with complete control. I always say, speed is an afterthought.
