BUS

There is no subway system on Jeju Island but the buses are plentiful and comfortable. Bus routes cover almost all of Jeju Island and are the most economical way to get around, as well as being one of the most scenic.
Fares on all bus types on Jeju Island can be paid in cash or with a rechargeable T-money card, available for purchase at convenience stores. Basic bus fare is 1,200 won (1,150 won with T-money card) for all types of buses, except for express bus. You will be able to transfer a maximum of two times per fare only when using T-Money Card. In other words, you can go to every corner of Jeju Island on only 1,150 won. Free WiFi is also installed in all buses and stops on Jeju Island.

  • 1. Jeju Bus System

    The Jeju bus system divides the island into four regions; Northeast (Jocheon, Gujwa), Northwest (Aewol, Hallim, Hangyeong), Southeast (Namwon, Pyoseon, Seongsan), Southwest (Andeok, Daejeong). There are 45 bus routes that run in these areas.
    The types of Jeju buses are 4; Express bus, Main line bus (including Jeju City and Seogwipo City), Feeder line bus (including Jeju City and Seogwipo City), Rural routes and Tourist bus. The new numbering system, which was introduced as of August 26, 2017 will help you easily identify the type of bus, departing stop, and bus route. Intercity express buses are 100 numbers, city buses (main line bus) for Jeju city and Seogwipo city have the numbers 200, 300 and 500, rural buses are numbered 400, 600, 700, and finally, buses in the outlying areas that take visitors to key sightseeing spots and volcanic cones have the numbers 810 and 820.

    Jeju Island’s bus number system is as follows:
    Bus No. starts with Bus Type Fare (Adult) Bus No. starts with Bus Type Fare (Adult)

  • 2. Types of bus

    Express bus

    12 express buses travel between Jeju’s main locations, including airport, city bus terminals, and transit centers (transfer bus stops), in around 1 hour. Bus fares start at 2,000 won for the first 20 km when using T-money card. An extra 200 won will be charged per 5 km after that, up to a maximum fare of 3,000 won. If you pay in cash, the maximum fare of 3,000 won will be charged.

    * Pros: the fastest
    * Cons: expensive and long intervals (30 ~ 40 min.)
    Main line bus

    Main line buses connect comfortably to places throughout Jeju. However if you are in a hurry, you would be better to take express buses, since main line buses stop at almost every station on all bus routes. Some main line buses usually go the same direction with express buses.

    * Pros: 1,200 won flat fare (900 won for Middle and High School students, 400 won for children), free transfer a maximum of two times in 40 min. each, short intervals (15 ~ 20 min.)
    * Cons: slower than express bus
    e.g.; From Jeju City bus terminal to Jungmun Tourist Complex (same bus route)
    182 (express bus): 7 stops, takes 52 min. (3,000 won in cash, 2,000 won with T-Money card)
    282 (main line bus): 31 stops, takes 1 h 5 min. (1,200 won in cash, 1,150 won with T-Money card)
    Feeder line bus

    Feeder line buses reach almost every corner of Jeju island. You can comfortably and easily transfer from an express bus or a main line bus free of charge when using T-money card. (If you use cash, you cannot get transfer discounts.)

    Tourist bus: Tourist area circulation routes

    Jeju island is home to a number of UNESCO designated World Natural Heritage sites such as Manjanggul Cave and Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, as well as distinct tourist attractions like the numerous oreums (Jeju dialect for small volcanic cones) scattered around the island. As major attractions are situated all over the island, joining a tourist bus would be a great option to get around Jeju.
    Two bus routes cover Jeju’s most popular tourist scenic spots. The Eastern District Tourist Area Circulation Bus (810-1 and 810-2) departs from Daecheon Transit Center and passes the Jeju World Natural Heritage Center, Bijarim Forest and YongnuniOreum. The Western District Tourist Area Circulation Bus (820-1 and 820-2) covers Shinhwa World, the Jeju Aerospace Museum, Jeju O’sulloc Tea Museum, JeojiOreum and other spots in the southwest.
