From October, Seoul’s sprawling underground system will have special bicycle carriages to encourage people to ride bikes. [link]
The special compartments, located in the front and rear cars, will have two bike racks instead of the standard seven-person chair.
Forty trains on subway lines no. 1-8 will have bike carriages by October, and a total of 359 trains will be equipped by next April.
Ramps for easy conveyance of bicycles and special gates for bike riders will be installed at 38 stations, including City Hall Station, by the end of the year.
(City Hall underground station already has bike ramps on some exits.)
