    Subway is the most important...

    Subway is the most important means of transportation in Seoul. The subway in Seoul was inaugurated on August 15, 1974, for the 7.8km section between Seoul Station and Cheongnyangni Station.

    Currently, the Seoul subway system is made up of Lines 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Eight subway lines and a surface line of the government-run Korean National Railroad (KNR) merging with them serve Seoulites and visitors most effectively. Colored differently between lines, Seoul subway lines link the farthest parts of Seoul and its satellite cities and cross each other at various transferable stations, marked by the symbol.

    In general, subway trains operate at intervals of 2.5 to 3 minutes during the morning and evening rush hours, and at intervals of 4 to 6 minutes during the non-rush hours.

    It is always crowded with many people and many cars. So, subway is the best way not to waste time on the road.
    However if you are planning to ride on the subway, it will be better to avoid rush hours. It is really crowded and you wouldn't feel good about being jammed in the train -_-;.
