URBAN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN SEOUL: SYSTEM, OPERATION, USE BY PEOPLE

Subways and buses are among the most important elements of the public transit system in Seoul, Korea. This paper describes details of these subway and bus systems. However, community bus lines are not dealt with in detail because the firms operating them do not produce statistical data on their operations. Data represented in this research is from 1996 and 1997. The first section discusses system and route information. Next, a section on operations discusses organization, operation characteristics, and facilities. The last section discusses usage including mode shares, ridership trends, and user characteristics.
