Scaling up transit sharing in Seoul

Seoul has made sharing services part of its transport demand management policy, which targets individuals without cars. The city’s car sharing policy aims to have 2,000 stations across the city (5 stations per city district) by 2030. The city also provides bike and scooter sharing services. Public transportation and sharing cards can be used to access most services.

In particular, within the Seoul Car Sharing Program, the City subsidised 50% of car parking spaces for car sharing services, booked through an app. This supported the membership from 373,513, in 2014, to 2.3 million by mid 2018 and tripling of user rates. The Seoul Car Sharing program alone is estimated to have saved 486 tonnes of CO2, due to reduced car ownership.
