“Unlimited public transportation in Seoul for 65,000 won per month”… Financial support is homework

Seoul City has decided to introduce unlimited public transportation passes on a pilot basis.

The monthly fixed fee was set at 65,000 won, and the city of Seoul predicted that citizens’ transportation costs would decrease, but it is pointed out that the financial situation must be considered to determine whether the system is sustainable.

Reporter Kim Seong-su reports.


For just 70,000 won per month, you can get a ‘D- Ticket’ that allows you to use unlimited public transportation throughout Germany.

Thanks to its relatively low price, it has sold over 10 million units since its introduction in May of this year.

The city of Seoul will also introduce a similar unlimited public transportation pass, the ‘Climate Companion Card,’ on a pilot basis next year.

The fee is 65,000 won per month for adults.

It can be used on most Seoul subway lines, including Seoul Subway Lines 1 to 9 and the Gyeongui-Jungang Line, as well as city and village buses.

You can also use the 1-hour public bicycle ‘Ttareungi’ for unlimited use메이저사이트.

However, it cannot be used on the subway Shinbundang Line or Gyeongin area buses, which have different basic fares, and cannot be used when riding anywhere other than Seoul.

It is also predicted that carbon emissions will be reduced as the use of passenger cars decreases and the use of public transportation increases.

The key is the financial burden.

The city of Seoul estimated that it would suffer a loss of about 75 billion won during the pilot operation from January to May next year.

First, the plan is for local governments and transportation companies to bear half the burden.

Seoul City announced that it would consider implementing the project jointly with Gyeonggi and Incheon.
