Daegu Transportation Cards

Transportation cards:
Two of the Daegu smart transpsortation cards are pre-paid: the DaeGyeong Transportation Card (useable in and around Daegu) and the new Top Pass(useable in both Daegu & Seoul -and surounding areas). The prepaid Top Pass can be purchased at the Daegu Bank. The card itself costs 2,500 won. It must have money charged to it (up to a maximum of KRW 500,000) before it can be used. You can use this pre-paid Top Pass card at any store displaying the T-Money logo.  

Note: the Top Pass card can be automatically recharged up to W10,000 when getting on a bus when the balance left on the card is less than W5,000. An account with Daegu Bank is required to be eligible for this top-up service. For more information, visit the Top Pass website (in Korean only) website or contact the Top Pass call center at 1577-8058. Information is also available at Daegu Bank branches (in Korean only at this time).

The other two cards are deferred-payment cards: the BC Card and the KB Card.  Bother cards may be used throught Korea on all forms of public transportation. They are essentially a credit card which can function as a transportation card, and they are available throughout Korea at any branch of the Daegu Bank.  Since it is a credit card, you need to submit proof of income to the bank.  For details of the deferred-payment BC Card, please call Daegu Bank at 053-740-2273.

Prepaid cards can be purchased at designated convenience stores or in subway stations. They can be topped-up and/or balance checked in the card machines found in all subway stations.
