Demand for Honam KTX Increases with Request for Allocation of Additional Trains and Changes in Train Following

호남 KTX 수요 증가, 증편+열차 교체 요구 잇따라

Demand for Honam KTX Increases with Request for Allocation of Additional Trains and Changes in Train Following

 

With the demand for travel on the Honam KTX increasing sharply, voices have been raised for an additional allocation of bullet trains and seats.

Jeollanamdo and the city of Gwangju have requested that the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport add to the capacity of the Honam KTX linking the southern, central and capital regions.

The total number of users of the Honam KTX has grown to 33,000 from conventional 25,000, marking a 33 percent increase.

Despite this rise, Gwangju and Jeollanamdo have argued that the number of trains in operation has only increased by 4 a day or 26 seats per train.

The city officials in Gwangju said that since the demand for Honam KTX is expected to increase sharply in July and September due to the Universiade and the opening of the national Asian Culture Complex, the Korea Railroad Corporation and the Transport Ministry should take measures to increase the number of trains and seats.
