Oido Station is a subway station in Siheung, Korea. It is the current southwestern terminus of Seoul Subway Line 4 located almost 30 kilometers southwest of Seoul, connecting Oido to other parts of Korea. A commuter rail trip between this station and Seoul Station takes over an hour, and a train servicing depot is located nearby.
This station, along with Jeongwang Station to the southeast, serves the Sihwa Industrial District of southwestern Siheung.
Beginning in June 2012, this station also became the southeastern terminus of the Suin Line, linking the city of Siheung to southern Incheon.
Suin Line and future plans
The narrow-gauge Suin Line, which served as a means of transporting freight between Suwon and Incheon, was abandoned in 1995. Oido Station is the northwestern terminus of the section of the Suin Line that is still in use today; the southeastern terminus is Hanyang University at Ansan Station.
However, with the recent population boom in southern Gyeonggi province, the line is being relaid as a standard gauge railroad for commuter rail. The commuter rail is being opened over the course of a few stages. The first stage will incorporate an extension of Suin Line into southern Incheon, and will transfer with the Incheon Subway Line 1 at Woninjae Station.
