Daejeon Metro Information
The first subway line in the city of Daejeon began operations in March of 2006. It connects the Daejeon City station to the eastern as well as the western limits of the city. As part of an integrated transport network, the Metro service has feeder bus routes serving each station along the entire stretch.
The Metro network in Daejeon is extremely tidy and clean with the stations being decorated regularly with artworks presented by the local schoolchildren or students from the University of Arts. The stations of Seodaejeon-negori and Daejeon are locations where small musical performances take place. The main aim of these shows is to attract the older generation of Korean citizens in the region. Some of these musical performances, in fact, are along the lines of contemporary jazz.

Out of the five lines that have been planned for the Daejeon Metro network, there is only one route that has commenced operations as yet. Line 1 has been opened for complete service to the commuters since April of 2007. It serves to connect the original city center of Daejeon to some of the more recently developed and modern sections of the city such as Dunsan. While the other Metro lines are yet to be opened, there is a lot of speculation surrounding the plans of these proposed projects.
