Tip. Difference between ‘Express (Gosok)’ and ‘Intercity (Sioe)’ buses

Express (Gosok) and Intercity (Sioe) buses are the most popular way to get from region to region. The extensive networks of express and intercity buses offer a comfortable and convenient way to get to and from even the smallest towns in Korea.

At bus terminals, there are generally two types of buses: Express (Gosok) and Intercity (Sioe) buses. In some cases, these buses may run out of different terminals (from different locations in the city) so you may need to double-check before your departure. Once you arrive at the bus terminal, you’ll see that each bus is marked with a sign reading ‘Gosok’ or ‘Sioe’ along with the city for which the bus is bound.

Bus terminals with the word ‘Jonghap’ serve both types of buses. If a certain city runs separate bus terminals for Gosok and Sioe buses, check which of the two is more convenient considering your travel itinerary.
