Metropolitan Pass or MPASS is an exclusive transportation pass for international tourists for use in the Seoul Metropolitan City area and Jeju. The pass offers 20 rides a day for the duration of the pass, including Seoul Subway Lines 1-9, Incheon Subway, Airport Railroad Express All-stop Train, metropolitan trains (excluding Sinbundang and Gyeongchun (ITX) Lines), Seoul buses (excluding red buses), and Jeju buses. MPASS comes in five different durations: 1-day, 2-day, 3-day, 5-day and 7-day passes. They are valid for the designated time period, and expire at midnight on the last day of validity (Ex. 3-day MPASS Activation: May 1 / Expiration: 23:59, May 3).
