“Great Option to Get to the City”

AREX (Airport Railroad Express)
Ranked #1 of 3 Transportation in Incheon
Attraction details
Reviewed December 21, 2012

For the longest time, the buses were the only way to get to the city from the Airport. Taxis were also available but extremely expensive. The opening of Arex provides a great alternative to get to Seoul Station. From there, connections to the rest of the city or other parts of Korea are possible. The station and the trains themselves are very clean and comfortable. The train that I rode was not crowded at all and the ride was quick and efficient. I would highly recommend using Arex to get from Incheon to the city. It is fast, inexpensive and convenient.

This was my first time in Korea and I staying in a hotel right outside of Seoul. The train was about 2 blocks from my Hotel. It actually runs directly from the airport also. The train was super clean, it even had heat coming from below the seats( super cold night). If any one is doing an extended layover in Korea. Just hop on this train and take it right to the very end. You will get to Seoul in no time. I can't wait to return

It was very convenient quite cheap and uncrowded. But yes getting to Seoul station can be a hassle unless you live around there. Also it does feel a bit slow and you feel like you are wasting your time.

But over all gets the job done!

I was surprised by this service. This is the most convenient and fast connection to Seoul train station and the cheapest option. You do not have to pay for the express service as the commuter one is just 10 minutes slower (53 minutes). This one is just for W3850 + returnable deposit W500.

Design's are very quite and organized more than New York's JFK. I coiuld not believe myself that subway could be faster than express bus service that cost twice as much.
