Quick and efficient

Quick and efficient. You can use the subway app for ease of identifying routes. Otherwise, the metro is easily navigatable.

Terrible ventilation and always smelly of kimche or old food smells from the coats the locals don't usually dry clean.

Most lines are crowded. No good ventilation except a few lines. Seats are too hot in winter and no controls. Bad air and smelly. Price you pay as a low income poor person riding a subway. No control of temperature or strange smells and odors.

Good

I used to ride the subway every day since I moved house, It was clean, fast and the timeline was so clear. I've never been late for school. The only problem is too many people are gathering on one subway train. I think this is a chronic problem. However, the overall review is good!

Clean, cheap and easy to use.

Seoul Metro is so efficient, it gets me from A to B and is very cheap. I prefer it to NYC Metro and it's much, much nicer and quieter than the London Underground. Like any public transport system, it can get extremely busy but what do you expect. People are generally well-mannered and the queuing systems to get on board the train work well.

First time going solo and I made it. All the signs are easy to read especially if you have the Kakao apps.

Seoul Metro

Seoul public transportation is a great way to get around the city. The Metro and bus systems are inexpensive and fairly easy to figure out. Best of all they feel very safe. You can purchase a T Money card to avoid using cash every time. Taxis are cheap, as well.

Seoul Metro is highly efficient and clean. All stops are announced in Korean, English and Chinese. Price is not expensive.

Great way to travel and see the city which is a massive traffic jam
Jun 2020 • Family
Love this way of traveling and always a station near where you want to go. From Mall. Fun street, flower market, parks. Always a shopping arcade near and feel so safe to use. Easy after a few times and there are 40 underground lines. Amazing. Enjoy the trips.
