Seoul Public Bike, Ttareungyi, becomes more convenient to use
‘Seoul Public Bike, Ttareungyi’ which the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) has recently expanded for operation, will become even easier to use in the future. Starting in the afternoon of July 7, 2017, users can visit the Ttareungyi website (www.bikeseoul.com) and purchase a “non-member pass” to use the public bike by making a simple on-line payment (mobile phone micro payment, credit card payment) without going through an authentication procedure, sign up or make a deposit. Non-members and foreign tourists can only use a one-day pass (1 hour, 2 hours).
The operation of Ttareungyi will be stopped temporarily between 12:00pm July 5 until 12:00pm July 7, 2017 to change the user program and significantly simplify the use procedure for non-members and foreign tourists. To minimize user inconvenience, the SMG will make an announcement on the Ttareungyi website, put up notices at all rental sites and text (twice) all season pass holders. The expiration date for season pass will be automatically extended for two days.
All users are recommended to return bikes by 12:00pm July 5, 2017 since rentals and returns are prohibited during the time of the temporary suspension. During the suspension period, users will not be able to access the website or application. If you have any inquiries, please contact the Ttareungyi Call Center (1599-0120, hours of operation 07:00~22:00).
