Seoul City said it had completed installing the “Quick Response (QR) Code” at all of the city’s bus stations. This will allow each stop to show the expected arrival time of the next bus in real-time.
Seoul City noted that those stops not yet functioning as a “Bus Information Terminal” are equipped with a bus operation schedule for public convenience.
The QR Code provides the most precise and prompt information of bus arrival and departure times, Seoul City said.
Another attraction of this latest information-technology service is that smartphone users can scan the QR Code onto their mobile devices, which would allow them to access bus information at any time. Users would also be able to gain information on Seoul tourism and lifestyle.
The QR Code has been installed at all 6,300 bus stops around the nation’s capital.
Seoul City said the QR Code service is also multilingual.
The QR Code can also be accessed in English, Japanese, and Chinese. The service can act as a mobile guide for not only the bus schedule but also for recommending travel hotspots and providing real-time information on events and programs.
