[Living] How to use Intercity Bus Terminals in Daegu_3. Bukbu Intercity Bus Terminal







※ Things you should know before you use the bus terminals!


1. tickets can only be bought in person, not online
2. they can only be bought on the day of travel not ahead of time
3. buses do not have seat numbers so can oversell


In the past, there weren't many international visitors or citizens living in Daegu and because of that intercity terminals have not provided international language services. However, as the number of foreign visitors or citizens grows, the needs of using intercity bus from international people are also increasing. This post would be helpful for them.

It is not difficult at all to get to the terminal or buy tickets at the terminal, though four different inter-city terminals might cause confusion. Each bus terminals is located in northeastern, northwestern, southeastern, and southeastern part of Daegu, normally heading to those directions as you see in the image below. Today's post is about Dongbu Intercity Bus Terminal.












Bukbu Intercity Bus Terminal
(Bukbu Jeongryujang)

Bukbu Intercity Bus Terminal (Bukbu Jeongryujang) is located in the north-western part of the City. It is in the near industrial area and far from the center of town and therefore the transportation in this area is a little inconvenient.

* How to get to the terminal?


1. Taxi
- When you take a taxi, say “Bukbu Bus Terminal ro Gajooseyo"  to the taxi driver.


2. Bus

- Sunhwan 3-1(순환3-1), 202-1, 309, 323-1, 356, 427, 724, 726  (get off at Bukbu Bus Terminal Bus Stop on the map.)

This is a picture of entrance of Bukbu Intercity Bus Terminal Building. Mostly, busses from here go to Gyeongsangbukdo Province such as Andong, Mungyeong, and YeongjuWhen you get to the terminal area, you might feel the atmosphere here is a bit different from other areas since there are many foreign workers working in the factory district near the terminal.



This is the inside of the terminal building. There’s also an automatic ticket machine but English service is not provided. I recommend you to go to the ticket box to buy tickets. Check the destinations below and say your destination clearly to the ticket seller.

  2. Great site! I'll be visiting Daegu early next year for a few days and this information will be very useful. Too bad Daegu has so many different bus terminals. One question: can Miryang still be reached from the Nambu terminal? KTO site bus schedule shows Miryang bound busses only from the Seobu terminal. Moon handbook (2009 edition), though, indicates Nambu terminal. Thanks again.
