The great majority of roadside bus stops are old and narrow, thus endangering the safety of bus passengers and pedestrians alike.
There is an urgent need for new bus shelters for protection against snow and rain, and a new user-friendly traffic information service system incorporating information technology that will be suitable for everyone including the disabled and the ‘traffic vulnerable’.
Plan to improve 5,712 roadside bus stops
① Improvement of the design of bus stop shelters : development of Seoul's standard design② Increase in number of bus stop shelters : 1,489 shelters (26%) → 3,808 shelters (more than 66%)
More convenient facilities for citizens: BIT(in 2,784 stops), route maps (57,120 pages), Braille blocks (in 3,808 stops)
Installment and operation of BIT at bus stops not included in the 5,712 roadside stop improvement plan. ※ Reducing single-side BIT and increasing double-side BIT for the convenience of citizens
