Incheon Subway Line 2 Route BannerAfter 7 years of construction Incheon Subway Line 2 finally opens on Saturday July 30th 2016 and connects the northern area of the city (Seo-gu) with the rest of the city and finishes down in the South East of the City (Namdong-gu). The line was delayed by a year or so, but now it’s opening it should hopefully be a boost for local businesses as well as easing traffic congestion. It should be noted that some local bus routes will change because of the line opening and therefore people should check in advance their bus routes.Cheongna Seo-gu Bus Change Line 2

The line only uses small 2 carriage trains (pictured below), but they should run every 3 to 6 minutes dependent on peak or off-peak time.
