BUSAN, South Korea - Busan City has divided the Airport Limousine bus route to Haeundae into two routes to provide greater convenience and a more rapid service for those traveling to and from Gimhae International Airport. In addition to the current Haeundae route via Suyeong Intersection, a new route started operating from Gimhae Int’l Airport to Haeundae via Gwangan Bridge (or Diamond Bridge) on April 20, 2012.
The new route via Gwangan Bridge is expected to reduce travel times by providing a more direct route to Haeundae from the airport and to enhance visitors' first impression of Busan with the beautiful sea views from Gwangan Bridge.
The new route (Gimhae Int’l Airport → Gwangan Bridge → BEXCO → Haeundae New Town → Jangsan Metro Station → Haeundae Beachfront Hotels → BEXCO → Gwangan Bridge → Gimhae Int’l Airport) operates at 25 minute intervals 36 times a day. The bus fare is 7,000 won for adults and 4,500 for children. The bus fare can be paid either by transportation card, by deferred payment transportation card, or by cash. In addition, 6 new CNG buses have been introduced onto the new route.
The Airport Limousine bus services to Busan Station (fare: 6,000 won for adults, 4,000 won for children) and Haeundae via Suyeong Intersection (fare: 7,000 won for adult, 4,500 won for children), will continue to operate from Gimhae International Airport as before.
A City official said, “The new airport limousine route will better meet the growing demand from the Haeundae area and visitors to Busan will be thrilled by the views from one of Busan’s most memorable landmark structures, Gwangan Bridge, on their way to Haeundae's hotels and especially when returning to Gimhae Airport on their departure from Busan.”
