Seoul City Tour Bus services, which have been temporarily suspended since March of last year in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, will resume starting Sat, Apr. 3. Seoul City Tour Bus, which is a great way to look around all major tourist destinations in Seoul, is expected to introduce various charms of Seoul to both citizens and tourists alike.
Firstly, Seoul City Tour Bus will be operating in strict compliance with disease control and prevention regulations. Key disinfection rules for the safety of passengers are as follows: all staff will get tested for COVID-19 prior to operation; partial operation of bus routes and extended operation intervals; limited passenger capacity according to the social distancing level effective at the time; and recording a passenger log, conducting body temperature checks, no eating food on board, and so on.
Out of the six Seoul City Tour Bus courses, only four will be operated in consideration of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
