    SMG 5329
  • In order to increase the efficiency of public transportation near Songpa-gu, Seoul Metropolitan Government will be completing the underground construction of “Jamsil Metropolitan Transfer Center” (Songpadae-ro Jamsil Station to Seokchon Lake Bridge) and operate public buses in the area.

    Jamsil Metropolitan Transfer Center is a transfer facility where people can transfer between buses and the subway, thus enhancing the efficiency of public transportation and improving traffic conditions of nearby roads. Its construction began in June, 2014, and was completed in December, 2016.

    Thirty-one buses can park or pull over here, and the Center is connected horizontally to the 1st basement floor of Line 2 and Line 8 gates of Jamsil Station.

    Especially, the Center allows people to wait for their buses in a more pleasant environment, by preventing exhaust and CO2 through installing screen doors and air curtains between the pull-over site and the waiting site.

    Also, at the entrance to the Center from Jamsil Underground Square, an information screen is installed to provide all information related to the buses and their arrival times at the Center. BIT is installed at every stop within the Center, as well.

    At first, 6 bus lines to Seongnam, Suwon and Gwangju will be operated starting December 3rd, 2016. Later on, 11 bus lines to Guri and Namyangju will be added in early January, 2017.

    Further, the Center shortens the transfer distance between the buses and Line 2 from 530m to 50m, thus dramatically increasing the transfer convenience.
