The city of Busan plans to expand its pink light campaign to give priority seats for pregnant women on subway line No.1 in Busan on top of line No.3.

The new implementation will begin from the 23rd of next month after a pilot run.

The ‘pink light’ campaign was started by the Busan city council collaborated with local businesses in Busan, to remind passengers to yield seats to expecting women.

Pregnant women can receive sensors which light up the device attached to the priority seats. When the sensors are near the device, it becomes activated by glowing pink lights; an audio system also alerts passengers by telling them to yield their seats with consideration.

On top of the ones installed on subway line No.3, 284 pink light devices will be installed in two carriages of each subway train of line No.1 by next month.
