Starting on December 9, subway operation will be extended by one hour, according to the metropolitan government. However, the route will be limited to Seoul, due to protests by concerned unions. The Joint Committee for Safe Extended Subway Operations, which includes Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit, Incheon Subway, and Korail, held a rally at Seoul Station against the extended hours of operation. In the city’s argument, the subway operates for extended hours on special occasions, and safety problems have been corrected since initial plans for the extension began in July. Even if negotiations fail between the city and the unions, the city is determined to lengthen the normal hours by one with the help of non-union workers and managers.
