The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) will implement Five Chuseok Plans between September 27 and October 10, 2017 so that citizens can enjoy a safe, comfortable traditional holiday.
① One, implement a special inspection and carry out preventative measures to check road facilities, construction sites, and fire-prone areas to prevent accidents before the start of Chuseok. Have an emergency duty lineup ready to prepare for any unexpected natural disasters such as heavy rain. Station rescue teams on standby at major subway stations, terminals and cemeteries.
② Two, increase the number of Express bus / intercity bus operations by 20%, and capacity by 51% (compared to a regular day) to carry 130,000 travelers daily on average. Also, provide advanced and real-time traffic information through various media to promote travel convenience and establish traffic order through controlling illegal parking or refusal to accept customers by taxis.
