The objective of this paper is to introduce the innovative transport policies of Seoul that have recently been planned and implemented. In this paper, the various transport policies of Seoul are classified and explained according to two important paradoxes that are highlighted by Downs and Thomson, and Edgeworth. These paradoxes describe how to break the vicious circle of car and public transport use by restraining car use and encouraging the use of public transport, and thus indicate how traffic congestion problems might be solved.
