Get the refillable pass at any station. Add money anytime to refill using the machines. Don't waste time buying tokens.

That's right people, an actual Monorail that was not built in the 1950s! Daegu Metro's Line number 3 opened in 2016 and sends Monorail cars gliding above the traffic. The route has stops near downtown, Seomun Market, and Suseong Lake and is a great way to see the city from a higher vantage point if you are a newcomer or... More

The Daegu Metro is a simple subway system that consists of 3 lines - red, green and yellow. There are clear markings in Korean and English for stations that allow for transfers between the lines. The metro is well-maintained, reliable as trains are always punctual and the cost is affordable - more so if you opt to buy a Daegu... More

Fast and convenient way to get around the city. Highly recommend purchasing a transit card - the Daegu card works on the Metro as well as the buses. Many of the stations have numerous shops that sell clothes and various goods.

Daegu has only two subway lines, and a newly opened "Line Three" that's actually an above-ground monorail. One of the great things about living in South Korea is the cheap and high quality public transportation, and the Daegu Metro is no exception. It's fast and convenient and will pretty much get you anywhere you need to go. If not, the... More

The train system in Daegu is easy to use and very cheap at just about a dollar per ride. They have stairs, escalators and elevators and sometimes they go to different places, do so tread carefully. There are three lines with opportunity to change trains. And, there is convenience of lots of stops near markets.

Here is a very convenient, easy to use subway & metro rail system to travel around Daegu. The above ground metro rail line is good for limited sightseeing. The nearby underground PriMall is a smaller scale of Seoul's u/g shopping system.
