(Red Bus, Incheon Bus, and Gyeonggi Express Bus are excluded.)

Applying Method: Passengers are eligible for transfer privilege only when traveling with transit cards.
  • Passengers must tag the transit card on the transit card sensor whenever they get on or off.
    If passengers do not tag their card on the sensor, they will lose all their free transfer privileges.
    Under such circumstances, passengers will be required to pay a separate fare for each transportation mode they use.
  • Passengers will be subject to the total combined distance scale rates if they switch to other means of transportation within 30 minutes after getting off from the previous mode of transportation.
    If passengers get on after 30 minutes, it is regarded as an independent journey and a separate fare will be charged. However, when taking an early morning or a night time ride from 9:00 pm and 7:00 am, the length of time allowed for transfer will be extended to 60 minutes.
