bus schedule

Question from a reader: understanding the buses?

A reader named J.L. writes in asking about buses:

Hello Chris. I’ve been here for about 5 months with my Husband in [city redacted]. I was wondering if you had any websites that explain what busses to take to go to certain places? the 20 bus that takes us to Pyeongtaek Station//AK Plaza but I don’t know what busses to take from there to get to other places. I just mean city busses not the shuttle busses. I tried looking on a website I found on google but it wasn’t much help and didn’t tell me what busses go where. Thank you very much! Hope you can help!


Hi J.L.

Life in Korea: getting around rural Korea by bus

Author's note: 'Life in Korea' posts are aimed at the newer expats among us. If you have a more experienced perspective, comments are open!

Whoever had "half the fun is getting there" hasn't yet had the pleasure of getting around the smaller towns and cities of Korea. The good news is that all but the tiniest areas around Korea will have a bus terminal (and quite a few have train stations as well), it's up to you to make sense of the bus schedules. It doesn't help that the schedules - and prices - are written almost entirely in Korean, and sometimes updated by hand. You can get from point A to point B - just expect it to take a bit longer than it might if you were going to one of Korea's larger cities. The reward is getting to see the off-the-beaten-path places that few other foreigners get to see.
