The reason is usually simple. Digging a metro tunnel is expensive as hell, so Tramway offers a cheaper alternative for smaller markets.

Also, Changwon is supposed to build a Tram line by 2020-something as well, so there should be 2 lines bin Korea built at approximately the same time

Well, but we are talking about a 1,5 million people city.

When I lived in Daejeon last year I remember seeing signs on the buses advertising the pros and cons of a tram versus subway. Yes, the costs are very high for a subway, so I can see why they went with a tram.

Gyeongui Line Phase 3 to open on December 27th. The Phase consists of an extension between the current terminus, Gongdeok, and Yongsan. This will effectively link the Gyeongui Line with the Jungang line.

This information has been known for quite some time, but what was I believe still uncertain was the degree of integration between Gyeongui and Jungang line. It seems that two lines will merge altogether, and will be renamed - brace yourselves - Gyeongui-Jungang Line. Trains will go all the way from Yongmun to Munsan on the 119km line (yes, 119!). Apparently, some kind of express service will also be introduced.

Well...Korea is, after all, much narrower than it is long. That 119km will end up covering a large portion of Gyeonggi's populated eastern areas. Agreed though; that name is, uh, a little unwieldy.

Gyeongui·Jungang Line

The Gyeongui·Jungang Line was put in service on 27 December 2014. This new line is the comination of the Gyeongui Line and Jungang Line with the new connection between Gongdeok and Yongsan. A new station, Hyochang, will be added on 2015.


http://blog.naver.com/doryp/220221922346

This new line permits to cross directly the Seoul metropolitan area from Munsan to Yongmun, 118 km in total.

In addition to the Gyeongui-Jungang Line completion, two new stations opened today:
On the Suin Line, Darwol Station (in Eastern Incheon)
On Subway Line 3, Wonheung Station (in Goyang)

Things to look forward to in 2015:
- March: Opening of the Eastern extension to Line 9 from Sinnonhyeon to Jamsil Sports Complex (five new stations and transfers to Line 2 and Bundang Line)
- June: Opening of the Incheon Airport Maglev (6 stations), conveniently linking the airport with buttf*ck nowhere station. This opening has been pushed back a few times, so it could suffer another setback
- December: Suin Line will extend westwards and link with Incheon Station (on Seoul Subway Line 1), with 5 additional stations

Here's a map of Daegu Line 3



Look in the top right of the map for direction of north. It goes near the North Bus Terminal (북부터미널); it looks like only a 5-10 minute walk there from one of the stations.

Looks like the Daegu Line 3 Monorail will open in April instead of May.

Article dated Feb. 10, 2015
http://news.donga.com/DKBNEWS/3/all/20150210/69580978/3

translation:
Daegu Line 3 will have its official opening in April.

Daegu Metropolitan Transit Corporation explained, “For the last 10 months from April 2014 to February 2015 we extended the final testing phase. From February 9th, the Daegu Line 3 Monorail has been doing trial runs.”

Daegu Line 3 Monorail has invested in 28 trains and has been doing test runs in actual situations that the people of Daegu will use. For 60 days from 5:30am-12:00am (midnight) along 30 stations, a length of 23.1 km, it has been doing a total of 15,000 trial runs.

During the trial runs, simulations have been going on such as people waiting for the train, purchasing tickets, operations, facilities inspections, etc. These are all simulations of what will actually happen when it opens.

If there are no special problems during the Daegu Metro mandatory 60 day trial runs, the line is scheduled to open in April.

Also, there will be one wrapped train promoting the 2015 Daegu/Gyeongbuk World Water Forum from February 9th to the end of April. The wrapped train will be an attraction for the citizens and run 18 times per day.

Daegu Metro CEO Hong Seung-hwal emphasized, “Because we have been running full-scale and precision trial runs for the successful opening of the line, it will be an error-free and safe opening.”

Quote:
대구지하철3호선이 4월 시민들에게 공식 개통될 예정이다.

대구도시철도공사는 “지난 2014년 4월부터 2015년 2월까지 10개월에 걸친 본선 시운전이 완료됨에 따라 2월 9일부터 대구지하철3호선 모노레일 영업시운전에 들어갔다”고 설명했다.

대구지하철3호선 영업시운전은 개통 이전에 실제 개통 후 일반 이용객들이 이용하는 것과 동일한 조건으로 28개 열차를 투입, 05:30~24:00까지 총 60일간 30개 역사 23.1㎞를 총1만 5000 회 이상 열차 운행 및 시험을 거칠 예정이다.

영업시운전 기간 중에는 각 역사별로 실제 근무인원을 배치하여 역무서비스, 승차권 발매, 개집표기 운용, 설비 점검 등 실제 영업 시와 동일한 환경 하에서 실행된다.

대구지하철3호선은 별다른 문제가 발생하지 않을 경우 도시철도운전규칙에 따른 영업시운전 의무기간 60일 이후인 4월 경 개통될 전망이다.

또한 ‘2015 대구․경북 세계 물포럼’ 홍보 래핑 열차 1개 편성을 2월 9일부터 4월 말까지 하루 18회 운행해 세계 물포럼 홍보 및 영업시운전 기간 동안 시민들에게 볼거리를 제공하기로 약속했다.

대구도시철도공사 홍승활 사장은 “본격적인 영업시운전이 시작된 만큼 성공적인 개통을 위해 한 치의 오차도 없는 정밀한 영업시운전 기간을 거쳐 완벽하고 안전한 개통에 진력해 나가겠다”라고 강조했다.

At least they still have the place above the seats to put your stuff (although not many people use the space). I think Daejeon trains didn't have any place above the seats and I was surprised when I first saw that.

Info from kojects.com

Quote:
As anyone who has taken Line 9 will know, there are currently only four cars for each train meaning that services can get extremely crowded, especially in a city where 8-10 cars are standard for many lines. This is further exacerbated by how often trains come which is every 5-5.5 minutes during peak times and 6-7 minutes normally.

On 31 January, Line 9 timetables were changed from one express train for every two all-stop trains to one express train for every all-stop train as trial operations on the new extension began. While this means that express trains now actually come more often, all-stop trains come less often and overall services have decreased by 60 a day. To make matters worse, according to this article from The Kyunghyang Shinmun, passengers using Line 9 services have been increasing on average by 2,700 people a day.

Metro 9 says that 20 extra more subway cars will be added next year in September with 50 more cars on order to meet passenger demand, but these won’t be ready until a year and a half later in 2017. The possibility of another 70 cars is also being investigated for the opening of stage 3.

New transfer passageway links airport rail to Seoul metro



A new transfer passageway at Seoul Station connecting the Incheon Airport Railroad to Seoul’s Subway Line Nos. 1 and 4 is set to open on March 28.

The convenience offered by the new passageway will have the biggest impact on foreign tourists looking for a faster way to reach various attractions, according to railroad sources.

Until the passageway opens, passengers must walk up from the third underground floor to the second aboveground floor, and cross through the KTX waiting area to access the subway.

The new tunnel will connect the two train networks directly to minimize confusion. According to the Airport Railroad, it is expected to make transferring up to 10 minutes faster.

In addition, the new 304-meter passageway will also help travelers cut down on costs. Passengers will be able to take advantage of the discounts that apply to transfers between different subway lines in the city, provided they use a transfer-enabled metro pass.

Seoul will increase bus and subway fares from June 2015.

(summarized from here)

The base bus fare will increase between 150 and 200 won and the base subway fare will increase from 200 to 300 won. Currently the base fare is 1,050 for bus and subway. Fares rise the farther distance you travel.

that is right.
current won sung mayor increase public transfer fare rise higher and higher.
this rise decision TWO time in his regime.
predecessor mayor Mr oh depress public transfer fare as aspect of social welfare.

I have no car. with this rise fare my traffic money spent a lot.

In my opinions Seoul's most strong point compare with other global cities is very well public transfer system and very LOW fare.

But end up rise fare! So upset for me.

Not according to the map on the AREX website (http://www.arex.or.kr/jsp/eng/information/linemap.jsp) or the official online subway map (https://www.smrt.co.kr/program/cyber...in2.jsp?lang=e). The latter includes the recent line 9 extension, so presumably it's current.
