Seoul Metro, which operates Subway Lines 1 ~ 4, announced that it has now joined Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit (for Lines 5 ~ 8) in providing information on the ETA of the arriving trains at transit stations.
Said information is marked on a total of 38 information boards in 19 transit stations for Lines 1 ~ 8. So far, the two subway corporations have operated two different systems in providing such information, thereby causing inconvenience to the people.
Under the new arrangement, the two corporations will share technology and know-how to provide greater convenience to the people. Seoul Metro plans to expand the areas of mutual cooperation and share the necessary information with Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit.
Commenting on the new arrangement, a Seoul Metro official said they established the new system in cooperation with Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit to provide more convenient service to the people. “We will continue to improve the quality of our service,” he vowed.
