Made In Korea Thursday: Callbus App, the Late Night Transportation Savior

Traveling to Seoul to enjoy all of its nighttime paradise? Here’s a must-have transportation app that’s going to save you lots of cash when going home past dark.

Like Us on Facebook

Whenever you’re in Seoul, you can’t miss out on the night life. The streets of Gangnam, Itaewon, Hongdae and so much more will be bright with youth way past the late hours and much past dawn. But that doesn’t mean the bus drivers and subways will be staying up all night with you.

That’s why we’ve got the perfect transportation app that’s cheap, easy and basically your best friend.

So you’ve had a few drinks and you never realized the time fly past you. You swear it was midnight ten minutes ago, but the clock reads 1 AM. The subways are closed and the last bus stopped a while ago. How do you get home?

Instead of paying for an expensive taxi back home, carpool with others for a cheaper price with Callbus! Callbus is a transportation app that was developed by bright, young Korean entrepreneurs – and basically it saved my wallet more than a couple times while I was out! 😛

Callbus

 

The Callbus can basically get you home at the 50% price of a taxi. For example, a taxi from Gangnam to KonKuk University would cost about 12,000 won (~$10.50 USD), but with Callbus it’ll only cost you about 6,000 won (~$5.27 USD)! It’s the perfect app for university students, working employees, friends, family and anyone.

How does it work?

It’s basically a carpooling bus that’s easy to call with just a touch of a button.

1. Download the Callbus app on iOS or Android

2. Choose your starting destination and final destination

3. Follow the directions to the designated bus stop

4. Check the number, show your ticket, and hop on!

5. Check on real time your destination route!

Easy peasy~ Safe to ride and fun to use – you really meet new people on the ride home. You’ll be riding with people who are also headed towards a similar destination.

 

How’s the service?

The interior of the Callbus vehicles are absolutely superb. They’re clean as a new car, but they also go crazy with decorations for Holiday fun! The numbers are clearly shown to make sure you get on the right bus. And when else would you be able to ride a Mercedes Benz for such a low price?!
