I live in Tokyo and commute to school by bike; I would love to be able to take my bike on the train. I'm very envious! But I think I'd hate trying to navigate with a bike through busy stations...even during non-peak hours, some stations are packed. I would guess there are stations like that in Seoul as well?

Well I'm personally against this plan. Most of seoul and korea subways and railways are or are being undergound or elevated. This makes riders unconvenient to ride on subway or railways, because you have to go upstairs or downstairs with a bicycle when you want to ride on subway with a bicycle. It would be unconvenient for passengers as well. And as you said, some subways, especially seoul subway line 2, are very busy during non-peak time as well. I think the reason that government encourages bicycles is not for making the already-crowded subways worse, but for relieveing traffics as an alternative or assitant means of public transport. Government should concentrate, rather than allowing bicycles on subway, on park-and-ride facilities like this :

Seoul Metro on TV Program 01

There was a special tv program in relation with Seoul Metro 35th anniversary. It was more of a promotion program than a documentary, so I hope you consider it.


This clip is about the first train and the rush-hour time of one of the busiest station in Seoul subway.

Thanks for the clips. It looks like Seoul could use more commuter rail lines from the suburbs; why only plan three lines?

Thanks for your comment. About GTX, I already made an article here. In short GTX is for securing a quick access to Seoul downtown. There're many subway lines extended to outside of Seoul, even extended to outside of Seoul Metropolitan Area(see this map : source), but many of the current subway lines, except for Gyeong-Bu, Gyeong-In, Gyeong-Ui, Subway Line 9 etc, don't provide express service and are relatively hard, due to the difficulties of expansion, to provide this service in the near future. In result a lot of routes of three GTX lines are overlapped by the current subway lines.

Anyway I'm dubious about this plan being realized.(at least I don't think all of three lines are going to be built)

It's like RER in Paris. GTX official site itself introduces RER as an example of case studies.
