The Seoul Metropolitan Government has started operating Winking Rudolph Tayo the Little Bus in celebration of the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s holidays. A total of 26 buses with this design will be operated between December 8 and mid-January 2014.
The mascot images display ten different kinds of winks, and the buses will be decorated with the image of a red-nosed reindeer, deer antlers, and bells.
The buses will also be used to pay visits to less-privileged neighborhoods to present year-end gifts.
