The price is 10,000 Won and the trip will take about 90 min..

Please make sure you get off at the correct stop: CHEONGNYANGNI [pronounced cheong-nyang-ni ]. When you get off the bus at Cheongnyangni, there will be one or two ISS student services team members to take you to your dorm. Look for a student carrying a sign saying “HUFS – ISS”.

If at all possible, please give us a call from the airport or from inside the bus (by asking a passenger if you can use their phone to make a short call) to let us know when you are out of customs inspection and on your way to Cheongnyangni.

We recommend that you change the equivalent of at least U.S.$100 at the airport (if you haven’t changed any yet) to cover such expenses as the airport bus fare to the city, food, and your first few days in Korea. There is a bank on campus that handles foreign exchange but banks close at 4:30 p.m. and are not open on the weekends in Korea so please make sure you are prepared.
