Gapyeong City Tour Bus Routes and Fares

It’s much faster to take the Gapyeong City Tour Bus than to use regular public transit options like subway or local bus. These can take 90 minutes or longer just to get between popular spots like Nami Island and the Garden of Morning Calm. And I’m sure you didn’t travel all the way out of Seoul, just to ride the bus!

TIP  |  Take enough money with you to pay your fare with cash. While it’s technically possible to pay for tickets using a credit card, there have been reports of difficulties processing card payments on-site.

The Gapyeong City Tour Bus follows a circular route and stops at all the major transit stations and tourist sites in Gapyeong. There are 2 separate routes to choose from – an A Route and a B Route, so be sure to check which is more efficient for you before boarding.

Bus fare is 8,000 won per adult. This includes unlimited stops and rides over the course of a single day.

The Gapyeong City Tour Bus will get you to Nami Island independently

TIP  |  Consider booking an all-inclusive tour from Seoul to Nami Island or the Garden of Morning Calm instead. These allow you to see more places in a single day, and are way more efficient and comfortable than using public transit. Customize an affordable day tour here.

A Route | Gapyeong Terminal to Garden of Morning Calm

The A Route travels between Gapyeong Terminal, and the Garden of Morning Calm, with 12 stops in between. The whole route takes around 95 minutes to complete. Buses leave approximately every 2 hours – on the hour.
