Inter-city Bus

Bus Travel

Buses are boarded at the front and exited from the door in the mid-section. If using a travel card, scan it over the card reader when boarding and disembarking. A cash box is next to the card reader for cash payment. Exact fare is not required as the bus driver gives change. The city of Daejeon has developed an intelligent transportation system, which informs the arrival time of the next available bus through a computer monitor installed at each bus stop.
