Seoul Transit Card

Radio Frequency (RF) transportation card is a non-contact-type fare collection card, which is classified into two categories (Prepaid and Postpaid Card) based on the payment method. Prepaid card users may charge their cards with whatever amount that they would like to put on their cards in advance and continue to use the same card by recharging it with the desired amount when the remaining balance is lower than the basic fare. Postpaid cards are just like regular credit cards with the RF feature. They allow users to pay within a maximum of 48 days from the date they used the transportation.

T-money Card

T-money cards are multi-purpose cards used for a wide variety of payment types including transit fare payment. T-money cards are regular credit cards with a built-in non-contact type IC chip.Compared to other existing transit cards that utilize non-contact payment technology for paying public transit fares, the T-money card has a larger memory capacity and works more effectively with a CPU thereby providing better security and calculation performance.
