In modern society, the provision of mobility services is one of the important roles of the public, because the movement is regarded as the basic human right that is considered as important to food and shelter. Also, in overcrowded metropolises such as the Seoul metropolitan area, we are aggressively promoting the use of public transportation to minimize socioeconomic costs caused by traffic congestion and air pollution.
The integrated transportation service is a service to supplement the shortage of the existing public transportation system. It is basically a service for guaranteeing the right of movement of the user and improving the convenience of mobility. It is the most important purpose of reducing the socioeconomic costs. It is also necessary to secure the publicity of transportation services, improve operational efficiency, and ensure the substantiality of the transportation industry.
We hope that this study will be the basis for the introduction of integrated transportation services.
