seoul metro map

  • Seoul Metro is quite easy to use since the lines are color-coded and each station is labeled with a three-digit code.
  • The first digit refers to the line, and the last two digits indicate the station number. For example, the Myeong-dong station is 424, meaning stop number 24 on line 4.
  • You may also notice that some of the subway trains and platform designs differ slightly since Seoul’s public transit system is run by three organizations: Seoul Metropolitan Subway Corporation, Korean National Railroad, and Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corporation.
  • The subway operation hours are from 5:30 a.m. to around midnight. The estimated travel time between subway stations is about 2 to 3 minutes. The schedule can vary depending on the line, so remember to make a note of the schedule in advance.
