New Public Transportation System

For visitors to Seoul who are planning to use its public transportation, take note that the authorities have revised the bus and subway systems effective 1 July.

In a nutshell, they've colour-coded the buses to indicate different service routes, changed the numbering system, created special buses-only lanes on major streets, introduced the T-Money smartcards for cashless payments and the cruncher, increased fares(!!).
