The Ui LRT is an fully underground[1] 11.4 km (7.1 mi) Light Rapid Transit line from Ui-dong to Sinseol Dong in northern Seoul to be opened in July 2017.[3] The line is expected to carry 110,000 passengers a day and will have 13 stations. It will connect to Line 4 at Sungshin Women's University, Line 6 at Bomun and Line 1 & 2 at Sinseol Dong.[4] The last (northernmost) station will be in Ui-dong, hence the name of the line.

The line will use a dedicated fleet of 36 trains built by Rotem, a member of Hyundai Motor Group. The fleet will consist of 2-car trains, and will run unmanned.[1][2][5]
