The 2019 schedule of the five M60 buses that were originally scheduled to run from July 2019 through the end of 2021 will now include a change, according to the South Korean Department of Transport and Communications.
The new schedule was announced Thursday by South Korea’s transport ministry.
The new service will replace the previous M60 route between Seoul and Daegu, with a total of 12 routes. “
A new schedule is also being formulated for the 2019-2020 period.”
The new service will replace the previous M60 route between Seoul and Daegu, with a total of 12 routes.
The service will run on a single route each day from the central business district in Seoul, a departure from the usual one-day-per-week service.
Bus schedules of the M60, which is a hybrid bus with the electric motor, electric power steering and brake system, have been delayed twice in the past five years, due to a series of technical problems.
The first delay was due to an explosion at a test facility in October 2020, and the second was due in December 2020, when a crane failed to stop the M40.
Bus service on other routes has also been delayed multiple times.
South Korea has been trying to upgrade its buses since 2015, when the first bus service was installed.
But the ministry says that the M20 bus is now the most advanced bus service, having achieved reliability and reduced costs, and has already been upgraded.
