EverLine is a fully automated driverless 18.1-kilometer (11.2 mi) light metro system in Yongin, Seoul Capital Area connecting Everland, South Korea's most popular theme park, to Bundang Line of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway. The system is identical to AirTrain JFK in New York City, using single-car Bombardier Advanced Rapid Transit vehicles[2] controlled by Bombardier CITYFLO 650 automatic train control technology.

Ground was broken for construction in November 2005. Starting in November 2009, the operating company conducted test runs of the trains. The opening was delayed several times but finally opened for service on April 26, 2013.[1][3] A physical transfer to the underground Giheung Station opened on January 9, 2014 and free transfers to the Bundang Line and buses will be introduced by early 2014.

Operation[edit]

Trains run every 6 minutes with the goal of carrying 25,000~30,000 people per hour.
