Busan Subway Line 2 (2호선) is a line of the Busan Subway that crosses Busan, South Korea, from east to west, running along the shores of Haeundae and Gwanganli, and then north toward Yangsan. The line is 45.2 km (28.1 mi) long with 43 stations, with 1 not operating. The line uses trains that have six cars each.

A ride through the entire line takes about 1 hour 24 minutes.

History[edit]

Plans to create this line began in 1987, and the idea was finalized by 1991. In 2001, there were originally plans to have three more stations beyond Yangsan Station when they were constructing the third section of the line, but with the citizens of Yangsan requesting a different line to enter their city, the idea was scrapped as a replacement with another new light rail currently undergoing approval.

Another plan (which is also older) was of four additional stations stretching beyond Jangsan Station (201), but was scrapped in the beginning for cost issues. Currently, the extension idea is reviving, but another idea is to have a different rail (expected to be a light rail) to take place from Jangsan Station to the city of Ulsan.
