Bike Promotion Seoul



It's Sunday afternoon, killing time, and have come across a nice site, TheCityFix.com. Described as 'an online resource for sustainable transport news, research and “best practice” solutions from around the world.' Its definitely a site I will keep an eye on. 
One article that took my attention was this, "Seoul Give Bike Subsidies to Commuters", in short its a program to promote public transit use. "Bicycle commuters are encouraged to ride their bikes to subway stations, park at designated kiosks and receive their subsidies upon retrieving their bikes by scanning traffic cards." For me its good to see more cities realising that bicycles need to be part of a whole system of transport, and should be integrated into existing infrastructure.
