Incheon Subway Line 1 is a subway line, part of Incheon Subway.

Trial runs on Line 1 (now a 29.5 km north-south route) started in March 1999. After six years of construction it opened for regular service on 6 October 1999 as the fourth subway system in South Korea after Seoul, Busan and Daegu. A trip along the line from Gyeyang in the north to Int'l Business District in the south takes approximately 57 minutes.

The line is also part of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway Network, as Bupyeong Station has a free transfer point to Seoul Subway Line 1. At the northern terminus of Gyeyang Station it connects with the AREX Line which leads to Incheon International Airport and Seoul Station. It is also connected to the Suin Line which allows travelers to Line 4 and eventually to the Bundang Line.

By October 2012 the line will also connect with the Seoul Subway's Line 7; currently under construction. Incheon Line 1 will get one more station to Songdo Landmark City 0.84 km beyond International Business District Station. Construction is planned to start in 2013 and be completed by the end of 2018.[3]

Incheon's subway is totally underground except for a ground-level section north of Bakcheon.
