An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post
From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.
Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net, and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.
If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!
Welcome to Jeju! You’ve arrived at Jeju International Airport. But now what? How do you leave the airport?
Jeju offers a variety of transportation to help you leave Jeju Airport and get to your hotel or desired tourist attraction. If you are planning to use public transportation, make sure to buy a T-money card and load it up.
After getting your T-money card, you can exit the airport through 5 different gates. The one closest to the Arrival Entrance is Gate 1.
Going outside, you can see different signs for taking the bus, finding a taxi, and getting a rental car.
OPTION 1: If your hotel is in Seogwipo (the south city of Jeju), you can take the limousine bus #600, which is located at Gate 5.
Bus #600 operates every 18-20 minutes. The first bus departs from the airport at 6:20am, and the last bus departs from the airport at 10:00pm.
You can pay the fare for the Limousine Bus by cash or by your T-Money card. The fee is from 1,300Won to 5,500Won, depending on how far you will go.
OPTION 2: If you are going into the city, you can take a city bus. The stop is right between Gate 1 and 2. The buses that stops by Jeju International Airport are #36, 37, 38, 70, 90, 95, 100, 200, an 500.
There will be a digital screen that posts the bus arrival time.
You can pay for the city bus with cash for 1,200Won or with your T-money card for 1,150Won.
OPTION 3: If you prefer a more direct path to your destination, you can take a taxi. The taxi stand is across the street from Gate 3 of the airport.
Once you get there, you will be directed to either the taxi stand for Jeju City, or the taxi stand for Seogwipo City.
The taxi stand works as a first-come, first-served queue, so you can just stand at the taxi sign and the next taxi in line will pick you up.
You can take the regular taxi, or the jumbo taxi if you are traveling in a group with a lot of luggage. The base fee for a regular taxi is 2,800Won, and 3,500Won for a jumbo taxi. For a regular taxi, from Jeju International Airport to Seogwipo is about 30,000Won. From the airport to Seongsan Port is about 40,000Won. You can pay for it with cash, credit/bank card, or by T-money.
OPTION 4: Many of you may prefer your own transportation, so you can rent a car to go around Jeju. You would need a valid driver’s license, an international driver’s permit (from the same country as your driver’s license), and a passport for identification purposes.
You can rent a car at the airport at one of the many service desks from different rental companies.
As you exit the airport, you will see shuttle buses that can take you from the airport to the rental car lot.
You can also follow the pedestrian path to walk to the car rental location (rental car house).
