    Seoul City will extend the operating hours of buses connecting major areas of the city between December 15 and December 31 to help people spend more time at year-end parties without worrying about how to get back home late at night.

    Ninety-two buses passing through ten major high-traffic areas (i.e. Hongik Univ., Gangnam, Jongno, Sinchon, Yeongdeungpo, Yeoksam, Yeouido, Konkuk Univ., Guro, and Myeong-dong) will extend their hours of operation to 1:00 AM. Buses serving routes to Bucheon, Goyang, and Seongnam (No. 661 Yeongdeungpo-Bucheon, No. 707 Sinchon-Goyang, and No. 9404 Gangnam-Seongnam) will extend their hours to 2:00 AM.

    The 47 late-night “Owl Buses,” which operate along eight routes, will run normally from 11:30 AM to 5:00 AM, regardless of the extension of operating hours for ordinary buses.

    Details of the routes and specific operating hours for the buses will be provided through the digital bus information displays at bus stops and the Seoul Traffic Portal and mobile application.
