Dec 04, 2020

Seoul (South Korea), December 4: The Seoul city government said Friday it will reduce bus and subway services by 30 percent after 9 p.m. to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Acting Seoul Mayor Seo Jeong-hyup made the announcement during a virtual press briefing, saying the reduction will apply to buses starting Saturday and to the subway starting Tuesday.
The move came after the city reported a new high of 295 new coronavirus cases Thursday.
The capital city has been under Level 2 social distancing rules since Nov. 24, the middle level of a five-tier system.
To supplement those restrictions, the city government also reduced bus and subway services last week by 20 percent after 10 p.m.
