● How to use CITIPASS
For the Bus System (including Seoul inner city tour buses)

1) After entering the front of the bus, place your card on an electronic debit sensor machine located near the driver. The screen will display how much has been automatically deducted from your card as well as will let you know your current balance.

2) Before getting off the bus, place your card on another electronic debit sensor machine located near the back by the door.
Caution: If you don’t touch the sensor before you get off the bus, you may have to pay a full fare without a discount for transfers or you may be charged the longest-distance fare as a penalty. However, for a Seoul city tour bus, you don’t need to use your card when getting off.
For the Subway System
1) Place your card on an electronic debit sensor machine to get through the subway turnstile.
2) When you lift your card off the sensor, it allows you to pass through the subway turnstile.
