Wow, the line seems to be pretty advanced, why will it take so long to open it? 2011 is like 2 years still!

According to data from website, the estimated schedule is :

2006 : 8%
2007 : 41%
2008 : 68%
2009 : 86%
2010 : 96%
2011 : 100%

so still remains 14%.

It's scheduled to open next year. Anyway Busan Transportation Corporation decided that they would name the extension of Line 3 ' Busan Subway Line 4'.

Are there plans to extend the Gwangmyeong branch? Or is there so much demand to Gwangmyeong that it was the only station needed?

That makes so much more sense to name each line its own number rather than one line number with multiple branches.

I don't think there're any plans to extend Gwangmyeong branch. When it first opened the train was 10 cars but it was changed into 4 cars formation because of low demand.

love that bus

I was dully imprerssed with seeing this new Hyundai. I love the brand (I own an Accent). I recall riding the 1930's design GM buses when I was a boy in New York City. It was exciting to ride them because they always took us on a visit to family or an adventure to see a movie. Then you'd get on to go home and be safe and sound in your own place. Buses seem to be under-rated and not very well utilized here. In this area we have a bus line, but it is only good for going to a shopping mall. Anyway, I do admire these new buses because of their modern space utilization and design. I feel Hyundai makes a quality product.

Hyundai paticipated in this project and made the prototype. But the commercial version above is not Hyundai bus, but Hankuk Fiber bus. (Hankuk Fiber was also a participant of this project) Anyway Hyundai would benefit by this project, as a memeber of this project, when they make their own low-floor bus, even if they don't mass-produce this type of bus.

I don't like the design, for some reason i prefer box shaped buses, maybe because they're more usual

I have no knowledge of any/many bus manufacturers throughout the world. I know Hyundai is involved in heavy industrial applications and productions. I have not heard of Hankuk Fiber, but I will research it. I like this moulded looking shape because it reminds me of Old-Look GM buses from the 40's and 50's, just a bit exaggerated.

Nice bus (at least for now,because however today it's design is interesting,it isn't timeless and I don't know how we'll find it in eg. 10 years).An advantage of this design is that you can easily hide gas tanks (or electric equipment) on the roof.Desktop really cool,but seats could be better. Now price:initial price 550 000 $ for 11m long bus,even if it is supplied by batteries (supposed later price ca. 340 000 $ is more acceptable,but how much it is now?) And 110 km on once charged batteries... For short distances it is enough,but when you use it in city similar to Soul it may be too less for the whole day of work (but if there is a lot of power supply stations,eg. on loops,there's no problem ).
Are they going to produce any longer variants and if yes,then how much they have to cost (because,as I read,Soul is planning to buy few tousands of these buses;are there any articulated buses in Soul?)?

I've also never heard of Hankuk Fiber making bus.It was almost the first time that Hankuk Fiber was emerged as a bus-manufacturer.
