a cheaper and easier to organize way to use Seouls public transport Dec 18, 2010
T Money cards are Seoul's credit card style public transport system, that works by holding the card in front of the electronic scanning devices at the entrances to buses and subways (and even taxis) as you enter and leave. The journeys are fractionally cheaper than paying for each individually, but the main advantage is avoiding the sometimes substantial queues.

To get a T Money Card, go to any subway station counter, and ask for 'T Money Card Juseyo' (please bring me a T Money Card - but politer than the direct translation!). The card itself costs 2,000 Won, and you can top it up at machines in every station with amounts in multiples of one thousand (roughly one dollar). You don't even have to take the card out of oyu wallet to scan it, but it's important to remember to scan when you leave as well as when you arrive at a station or on the bus, as if you don't you'll be charged for the maximum distance you could have traveled.
