Two ‘Chairless Trains’ To Be Introduced During Rush Hour On Seoul Subway Lines 4·7

The Seoul Transportation Corporation Announced That It Will Launch A Pilot Project To Improve Seats On Seoul Metro

Seoul Metro will pilot a plan to introduce two chairless compartments on subway lines 4 and 7 starting in January next year to ease overcrowding during rush hour. Chair removal will be prioritized by selecting the lines with high rush hour congestion and fewer critical components under the seats.

The Corporation Also Said It Is Also Working On A Long-Term Plan To Address Subway Overcrowding

In the long term, the corporation has set a goal to introduce 30 more trains in three batches of Line 4 and 8 more trains in one batch of Line 7. The corporation said it is making various efforts to reduce subway congestion, including increasing the number of trains during rush hours and hiring congestion safety assistants at major stations. If the pilot project proves effective, it will be expanded in the future to make the subway more comfortable and safe for citizens, according to the corporation.
