Seoul Metro Lines

The Seoul Metro is one of my favorite things about living in Korea (especially coming from Detroit where public transport is virtually non existent), so I decided to make a simple graphic on the 19 subway lines, their length, and the year they opened. It was pretty interesting researching when each line opened and seeing how fast and how big the system has become since Line 1 opened.

I actually hate Line 1 the most as I can usually never sit down, and it always seems to be the most crowded line that I take. I live in Incheon now, so I frequent Incheon Line 1. Incheon Line 2 is being built right now which should open in 2014. Click on the graphic for a closer look.

Which lines are your favorite and which ones do you take the most often?
