Over the past few months, I’ve been noticing these all around Seoul.
Number of Seoul Bike stations has been growing really fast.
At first, I didn’t really see the point of these bikes.
(Since Korea has an excellent transportation system)
However, recently I got a chance to try the Seoul Bike and I immediately jumped on the bandwagon.
There are so many great things about Seoul bike.
1) Easy and very quick process
Having a dedicated application on your phone, you can check the status of the bike station and reserve to ride the bike. The application is very easy to use and the process of reserving from your phone to riding the bike takes less than 3 minutes.

2) Reasonable Price
For a single ride (1 hour is 1,000 won) and (2 hours is 2,000 won) .
However, I recommend you purchase the monthly / 6 months / yearly membership.
It is much more cost effective. Monthly membership is 5,000 won.
So you can ride Seoul Bike unlimited number of times for 1 month for just 5,000 won.
As you can see on the map, Seoul Bike stations are everywhere!
When you don’t feel like walking or taking a bus, just look for a Seoul Bike station near you and ride away!
After, you can just drop the bike off at any stations near you!
When you visit Seoul, don’t limit yourselves to buses, subways, or taxis.
Getting around on Seoul Bike is definitely a fun alternative!
