Check the train schedule for trains that allow full-size bikes in Korea.

This page lists the timetables for trains in Korea that allow full-size bikes. (All trains allow foldable bicycles.)

You’ll also find brief descriptions of the rail lines, and lists of which stations intersect with Korea’s certification bike paths.

The timetables focus on the two classes of trains that allow full-size bikes aboard, including:

You must reserve an advanced bike-designated seat to ride with your road, mountain, or hybrid bike. Use either Korail’s smartphone app or website.

One more note: Muguhwanga Trains are the oldest class still in operation. Korail retires them often. So train schedules and availability are subject to change.

The timetables below aren’t gospel. However, you can check the train numbers and initial departure times as a guide to find current trains with bike-designated seats.

Furthermore, both the Korean-language smartphone app and website clearly mark which trains allow full-size bikes.

Ride the S-Train

A few S-Trains (남도해양관광열차) allow big bikes aboard. However, these aren’t commuter workhorses. They cater to the leisurely tourist class.

S-Trains run limited routes. One travels from Seoul to Yeosu, like the Jeolla Line. Another meanders along the south coast of Korea. The second route doesn’t intersect a certification bike path. So we don’t list them below.

The Gyeongbu Line (경부선) travels from Seoul to Busan.

The Gyeongbu is Korea’s rail line (1905). Connecting the nation’s largest and second largest cities, it reigned as Korea’s transportation king until the construction Gyeongbu Expressway (경부고속도로) in the 1960s. To this day, close to 70% of the nation’s population live near it. 

Besides ITX and Muguhwanga classes, high-speed KTX and SRT trains run on the Gyeongbu Line.

The route originates from Seoul Station (서울역) and travels with the Honam and Jeolla Lines through Gyeonggi Province.

At Daejeon Station (대전역), the Gyeongbu Line splits and heads southwest. Major cities along its path include Suwon (수원시), Daegu (대구시), Ulsan (울산시), and Busan (부산시).

The Gyeongbu Line connects with several certification bike paths:

Gyeongbu Southward

Gyeongbu Northward

The Honam Line (호남선) runs from Seoul to Mokpo City (목포시), the end of the Yeongsangang Bike Path on the southwest tip of the peninsula. It passes Gwangju City (광주시) along the way.

The rail line’s title derives the historic name (호남) for the southwest region where it ventures and the fertile Honam Plains (호남평야).

Along with the Gyeongbu Line, the Honam Line’s upgraded rails run high-speed KTX and SRT trains.

Honam shares the same route with the Gyeongbu Line from Seoul until Daejeon Station (대전역). In Daejeon, Honam branches off and heads southwest to Mokpo.

Honam Line connects with these certification bike paths:

Honam Southward

Honam Northward

The Joella Line (전라선) travels from Seoul to Yeosu City (여수시), sitting on the bottom of the peninsula near the end of the Seomjingang Bike Path.

The railway’s name comes from Jeolla Province, which is now split into north (전라북도) and south (전라남도) provinces.

Jeolla Line first travels along the Gyeongbu Line from Seoul until Daejeon Station (대전역). There it branches off and follows the Honam Line.

At Iksan Station (익산역), just east of Gunsan City (군산시), Joella breaks away the Honam Line and continues to Yeosu City (여수시) at the bottom of Korea.

The Joella Line connects with the following certification bike paths:

Joella Southward

Joella Northward

The Gyeongbuk Line (경북선) is a small line that serves cities in North Gyeongsang Province (경북선). It runs from Yeongju Station (영주역) Gimcheon Station (김천역), northwest to southeast, within the province’s borders.

You can transfer from the Gyeongbuk Line to the Gyeongbu Line at Gimcheon Station (김천역). Remember to reserve a bike-friendly train in advance. 

The Gyeongbuk Line connects with a few certification bike paths:

Gyeongbuk Southward

Gyeongbuk Northward

The Gyeongchun Line (경춘선) carries ITX-Chuncheon trains from Seoul to Chuncheon City (춘천시) at the start of the Bukhangang Bike Path in the north.

While the line mostly follows the Bukhangang Bike Path, only the northern stations from Cheongpyeong Station (청평역) to Chuncheon Station (춘천역) lie on the certification path.

The stations from Toegyewon Station (퇴계원역) to Maseok Station (마석역) sit on the Gyeongchun Line Bicycle Road (경춘선자전거길).

Though not a certification path, it follows the rail line through Namyangju City (남양주시), east of Seoul, and merges with the Bukhangang Bike Path a third of the way up to Chuncheon.
