Humetro: Busan Subway

on 7 December 2011

Humetro

Every district in Busan city is connected by the subway line. Busan’s subway named Humetro, you can find many information from the official website or this blog post. Humetro, which combines the words ‘human’ and ‘metro’, implies the importance of the metro system for human. I think the name Humetro describes the exact condition of people using the subway. The air conditioner inside Humetro will adjust the comfort air according to the season. It will blow warm air in the winter, and will blow cool air in the summer.

It costs 1,100 won (for 1 line trip or before 10 km) and 1,300 won (for 2 line trip or over 10 km) if we use MyB card. But if we directly buy the “manual” ticket, it costs 1,200 won (for 1 line trip or before 10 km), 4,000 won for the 1-day pass ticket. We can calculate from Won to USD: 1 KRW = 0.00088 USD or 1 USD = 1,126.22 KRW🙂

Example:
1. I am in PNU and want to go to Nampodong market. So I have to go to station PNU station (#128), enter the gate that towards to Seomyeon station, we will stop in Nampo station (#111). On the contrary if I want to go to Nopodong bus terminal, I have to enter the gate that towards to Nopo, and Nopo station (#134) is in the last edge of the line 1.
2. I am in PNU and want to go to Asian Mart in Sasang. So I have to go to station PNU station (#128), enter the gate that towards to Seomyeon station. In Seomyeon, I have to change (transfer) the subway that towards to Buam. I will stop in Sasang station (#227).
3. I am in PNU and want to go to Haeundae beach. So I have to go to station PNU station (#128), enter the gate that towards to Seomyeon station. In Seomyeon, I have to change (transfer) the subway that towards to Jeonpo. I will stop in Haeundae station (#203).
and so on…

Soon, it will be open a subway line from Busan to Gimhae International Airport.

We can get the Humetro ticket by choose one of these 2 ways:
1. Directly buy ticket from the vending machine

My friend Amna shows us how to buy the ticket directly from the vending machine

2. Buy MyB card
Mostly of my friend called this card Miyabi, not MyB -___-“. We have to buy MyB card first, then fill it with some amount of money (minimal 5,000 won). We can re-fill it any amount and whenever we want. Fortunately, we can use this MyB card for printing documents and pay shuttle bus from PNU Station to campus. MyB card available almost in every mart i.e.: 7-eleven, Family Mart, GS-25, Homeplus, e-mart, etc.

If you just want to refill your MyB card in the multiplication amount of 1,000 won but you just have 10,000 won, don’t worry~~ because we can change our money in this machine! Great, right?😀

call this purple machine as "money changer"

After buy the ticket or using MyB card, we enter the gate to our destination.

Akhirnya saya nemu jingle-nya subway Busan, ini yang bikin kepala saya goyang kalo dalam subway😀

Liriknya punya arti seperti ini:

편안해서 좋아 빨라서 좋아, 정확해서 좋아 알뜰해서 좋아.
[read: pyonan haeso chowa ballaso chowa, jonghwa kaeso chowa alderaeso chowa]
[En] I think it’s comfortable and fast, I think it’s exactly like the flea.
[Id] Saya rasa (humetro subway) itu nyaman & cepat, persis seperti kutu.

오늘도 함께하고, 내일도 함께하는, 언제나 기분좋은 부산 휴메트로.
[read: oneldo hamkehago, naeildo hamkehanen, onjenagi bunchongen Busan humetro]
[En] Today and tomorrow, together always pleasant with humetro Busan.
[Id] Hari ini dan besok selalu menyenangkan bersama humetro Busan.
