[Korean Travel] Transfer Discount when Using Busan Taxis!
Busan is the first city in Korea to offer a transfer discount when paying for taxis with a transportation card.
Started from October 30, travelers using public transit can get an automatic 500 won discount on taxi fare when paying with a prepaid transportation card. Note that the transfer discount will only apply on transfers within 30 minutes, just like on buses and subways. Busan Metropolitan Government has approved the following public transit systems for this taxi transfer discount: Busan city buses, Busan Subway (Lines 1-4), Donghae Line, and Busan-Gimhae Light Rail Transit. The approved prepaid transportation cards are reloadable Cashbee, Mybi, and Hanaro Card. Unfortunately, foreigner-exclusive cards and Tmoney cards are not yet approved for use.
As the taxi transfer discount program is in the initial testing phase, not all taxis are participating. Before taking the taxi, look for images of the approved cards on the outside of the taxi, or ask the driver in advance if the transfer discount is allowed. Also please note that the discount only applies when transferring from public transportation to a taxi and not the other way around.
Experience a more convenient way of getting around when you visit Busan!
