"Serving the people" is written on the sides of the buses.

Those are really great pictures. The only pictures of NK that I've seen are from the subway and their map. I've seen desolate streets, but this is the first time I've seen traffic and people out.

Design of Korea's maglev train unveiled

Quote:
Korea has selected the model of the magnetic levitation (maglev) to be launched for commercial service at one of its international airports within five years on Mar. 2.

The Ministry of Homeland and Maritime Affairs said it selected one of three candidate models based on a survey of design experts, operators and the general public.

The model features traditional Korean designs and modern conveniences.The test version will be produced with indigenous technologies by September next year, and will go into commercial operation at Incheon International Airport, the western gateway to Seoul, in 2012, the ministry said.

It looks like a Monorails. It doesn't seem like it will have a very big capacity for handling passengers? Where will it connect the airport to?

I assume the "commercial operation" could be to link Incheon's satelite to the main terminal building?

It's more of a light-rail local type of maglev, similar to the one built for Expo 2005 in Japan:

How well did that 'Magelv Metro' function? Would it be preferable to a normal metro in any way at all? If [one day] a maglev system could be produced on a scale that could make it competitive to a normal metro system, would it then be better to use? It migth have better speed/braking, could be greener...?

I believe there were problems when there were high winds. As well, the train could not levitate on several ocassions. It was at overcapacity, too heavy to levitate!

KOREA | Buses

KOREAN LOW-FLOOR BUS STANDARD MODEL


Quote:
MLTM announces the Standard for Low-floor Bus, of which lower floor and wider exits ensure passenger convenience to easily get aboard and off.

The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs (MLTM) officially published the Standard for Low-floor Bus which defines key specifications and application schedule for Korean Low-floor buses, based on the achievements of national R&D project (Transport Efficiency Improvement Project).

The ‘Korean Low-floor Bus’ has advantages to the existing low-floor buses in terms of lower cost (KRW 20 mil cheaper per unit) and a 10~20% increase in fuel efficiency (about KRW 8 mil of annual cost-saving is expected).

In addition, the width of the front and rear doors will be widened (850 → over 900mm), while user-convenient facilities will be expanded including the securement system for wheelchair, armrests for seats on aisle sides, and equipment preventing foot-jamming.

The standard low-floor bus based on the announced Standard will be manufactured and supplied beginning November 2009, following about one year period of preparation.

The mass production and supply of Korean Low-floor Buses according to the MLTM plan is expected to expedite the government policy to replace 50% of the city buses nationwide by 2013 (about 14,500 units including existing low-floor buses).

Until now, only a few low-floor buses have been supplied to represent only 5% of the total buses, making it difficult for the disabled and the pregnant using wheelchairs or strollers to use public transits.

However, the expansion of low-floor buses will remove the inconvenience of such passengers, and also reduce the jolt of buses through the use of automatic transmitter, thus contributing to enhancing passenger convenience and facilitating public transport use.
Furthermore, it is expected that Korean Low-floor Buses can become critical public transport means embracing for the upcoming aged society, and also will receive great attentions as an environment-friendly transport means being fueled by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

MLTM, together with local governments, plans to provide subsidies to low floor buses satisfying such specifications as in the Standard to pay for the price difference with regular buses.

I also think its design is weird and I don't like the back especially because there's no window.
