Best Experiences from Public Transport Reform
Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development.

Abstract

Korea has introduced an urban rail system to provide high-capacity public transport services for its metropolises that are ever expanding and undergoing densification. The nation has also implemented structural overhaul of the bus industry, ensuring that city buses are fulfilling their function as a highly efficient and demand-responsive mode of road transport. This reform eventually raised the demand for public transport, which is the most remarkable progress made so far in Korea through its public transport promotion policy. This report deals with the achievements in public transportation, focusing on the process of establishing the current public transportation system based on urban rail and buses. Also examined are strategies to ensure effective operation of the system, as well as relevant examples.
In Korea, buses began to play a central role in urban transport in the 1960s when economic growth led to a rapid rise in urban population. (The rest omitted)
