● Blue buses travel on major roads and run for relatively long distances through Seoul.
● Green buses travel shorter distances and carry travelers between transfer points such as subway stations and longer bus routes.
● Red buses are express buses that travel from Seoul to suburban areas.

Buy a T-money Card and Be Ready for Sightseeing in Seoul!
While traveling in Seoul, you might notice beeping sounds coming from people's wallets, bags, or even cell phones as they touch a sensor when getting on or off the bus or subway. This is a transportation card called a T-money card, which can be used for buses, subways, or taxis while traveling in Seoul and other cities, including Incheon, Ilsan, and Bundang. T-money is very convenient and is compact enough to slip into your wallet or purse, and also comes in small accessory shapes that you can attach to your cell phone or keychain.
