The bus system in South Korea can be very convenient if you’re familiar with the routes you need to take. It may seem difficult to try to figure out your bus schedule if you’re visiting a new city, but it doesn’t have to be. Let’s try to hop on a bus using KakaoBus, a mobile app. 

KakaoBus is available in 57 South Korean cities and gives you real-time bus and bus stop information. Check your bus times ahead, set alarms for your regular bus schedule, including reminders to get off the bus at your set stop. The app also allows you to personalize information based on your current location, the closest bus stops, quickest route to get home, and available overnight buses. Users of Seoul’s red line can even check if there are remaining seats in advance.

Buses are a great and inexpensive way to get to know a new city or even your own neighborhood. KakaoBus will have you feeling like a local hopping on buses with its easy-to-use interface and extensive features. The app is available for iPhone and android at https://www.kakaocorp.com/service/KakaoBus?lang=en.
