With bike-sharing service, Seoul pulls off minimalist feat

SEOUL -- The South Korean capital has launched a bicycle-sharing program that keeps costs down for both riders and the city. And if the initial positive response is any indication, the service could help kick-start an urban cycling culture that eases traffic congestion here.

     Ddaleungee offers 2,000 specially equipped bikes at 150 docking stations around town. The rider borrows one from a station and can return it to any other, paying the equivalent of less than a dollar a day.
