Seoul Foreign School owns and operates a fleet of 20 full sized buses, with 24 bus routes that bring over 1,000 students to the school each day from within the greater Seoul area. Our bus routes are designed to serve as many of our students as possible, while keeping the routes as close to a one hour maximum as possible. Unlike other foreign capitals, foreign residents in Seoul are not concentrated in one general area of the city, but live in many different areas. This fact and Seoul traffic patterns make routing our busses particularly challenging. Thus, seating is not guaranteed.
Please fill out the Bus Registration Form to get started. Please note that in order to designate a route, the form must have the address of a permanent residence and busing will not be provided for temporary housing. Once a suitable bus and route has been identified, you will be contacted with your bus stop schedule, location, and contact information for the bus supervisor and bus transportation department.
Each bus is equipped with a cellular phone and the driver can contact our Transportation Chief or an administrator for instructions and guidance at any time while en-route. To assist the bus driver, each bus has a safety monitor assigned. Other international schools operate their buses without a safety monitor; however, we feel that the presence of a safety monitor is an important safety enhancement for our bus riders. Our safety monitors are very conscientious and work very hard to assure the safe operation of their bus; moreover, we work with them throughout the year on the best ways to perform their duties and proper ways to relate to their student passengers. All safety monitors speak at least minimal English.
