Transportation in Seoul


Seoul's subway network is the quickest and easiest way to get around the city. Eight lines extend out from the centre with Line 2 (green) travelling in a loop. Travel out of rush hour to avoid the crowds and professional subway pushers.


Taxis are safe and relatively inexpensive. You can hail one from the street or find one at taxi stands. Regular taxis are cheaper but most drivers don't speak English. Deluxe (black) taxis have English-speaking drivers and take credit cards. Rates go up 20% on regular taxis after midnight.


Some areas are best explored on foot and some degree of walking is necessary to see the sights. Use pedestrian walkways and underpasses whenever possible, since drivers don't always stop for pedestrians.


Seoul's many buses are cheaper but more difficult to navigate than the subway. They aren't the quickest way to travel during rush hour, but an exciting way to see the city. There are three types — express (faster, more expensive with seats), regular; and village (cheapest, for travel within a neighbourhood).

Despite traffic, honking horns, weaving traffic and double parking, the key to driving in Seoul is patience and politeness. In an effort to make female drivers feel comfortable, the authorities have even started to paint parking spaces pink!

Transportation tips

A T-money Card provides savings on single fares on buses and the subway. If you're travelling exclusively on the metro, the Commuter Subway Card is valid for 60 trips within a 30-day period and is good for all zones on lines 1-8. Driving in Seoul is not recommended for visitors.
