SMART IN SMRT It is important to have satisfied happy customers and to share our success with the neighbors of our communities. We believe that it is our customer

oriented two-way communication and our never resting drive towards innovation which enables the SMRT to offer our customers a greater service.

5678 SMRT endeavors to maximize the service through open management, customer satisfaction, civil welfare service and ethical management. Also by focusing on safety, environment and welfare, the SMRT always puts the happiness of our customers first.

In order to practice open and ethical management, a 5678 Report Center, various campaigns, improved personnel systems and accounting systems are put into action. With focusing on customer claims, we will make customer satisfaction to our top priority.

The Digital Transmission Facilities and the Image Transmission Equipments are there to be responsible for the safety of our passengers.

Also various projects such as supporting rural communities or purchasing local products from sister towns, helping orphan children to receive college education and frequent exchanges with local communities support the idea of “sharing management” of the SMRT. With launching different environment preservation and improvement campaigns it strives to establish itself as a role model among the public enterprises.

Safe SMRT Focusing on the safety of its customers, the SMRT managed to reduce accidents to below three a year. In addition, the average number of casualties in a year dropped groundbreakingly to a number of '1' from '26.4' after PSD installation at all 148 stations by 2009.

Comfortable SMRT Cultivating 50 CS leaders, the SMRT could offer our customers a newly upgraded service level. While the air quality maintaining a 150ug/m3, the noise level inside a train dropping down to 80db and at the stations to an 85db, the customer satisfaction increased.

Enterprising SMRT Having approximately 3.3million passengers a day and a daily income of about 1.3 billion won, the SMRT is taking its passengers fast and safely wherever its trains can reach. Also convenience stores, theme stations and shopping districts are an important source in

operating the SMRT successfully as it is today.

Harmonious SMRT Seeing staff satisfaction as equally important as customer satisfaction, the SMRT generously invested in working environment improvements, man-power development and regular health care check-ups. Also it is putting great effort in strengthening the relationship between the labor and management through regular joint workshops and management presentations.

Cutting edge computer systems keeping track to maintain the optimal speed and interval between each subway train. Every system of the SMRT is operated with the aim to offer our customers a comfortable and safe trip until reaching their destination.

The general controlling system which is watching over the power, signal, equipments facilities and communication, has also the duty to observe and to control the subway trains 24 hours a day until the last train is back in its depot.

The general monitor system has a train•signal control center, a power supply control center, an equipment control center and a train control center which is solving sudden problems and accidents.

An AFC is installed in order to offer our customers a more comfortable way to use their tickets. The purchase of tickets and controlling of the sales are automated, thus the whole system is faster and easier to handle.

The optimal combination of a cutting edge system and task-divided control centers are one of the many reasons for the efficient and fast management of the SMRT.

The SMRT 5678 is proud to develop better and safer techniques to maximize customer satisfaction. The installed platform screen doors are the result of a newly developed technology of the SMRT. Today like yesterday and tomorrow the SMRT is not resting to fulfill its dreams.
SMRT installed PSDs at all 148 stations of line number 5,6,7 and 8 while reducing construction costs through the in-house development of critical devices and a new method. With the PSD installation, we increase the air quality to 35.3%, the noise prevention up to 7.9% and the heating&cooling efficiency up to 36%. Moreover, the systematized cleaning of tunnels and stations is making the agreeable environment.

SMRT has developed the new contactless payment system and integrated remote controlling system.

A ticket carrier and contactless payment system in form of no doors will make usage of strollers and wheel chairs much easier.

Also in order to improve a superannuated controlling system a Task Force Team was formatted which established an integrated network system and re-designed the control center layout. By reusing the exciting infrastructure about a 15 billion won could be saved.

The platform screen doors are a great investment for a safer service. The fact that the technologies are “made in Korea” makes us even prouder.

It is our aspiration to provide our customer a greater and safer service from the customer’s standpoint. As the driving force for a better SMRT, our customers

are the reason behind every new technology or better service.

We believe that service excellence can only be achieved by seeing everything through the eyes of the customer. Therefore we continue to improve an uncomfortable environment through installing safety equipment for vulnerable passengers. The new seat compositions in the center of the passenger rooms and the lowered handles in the subway trains are one of the results of this campaign.

Also convenient stores such as Seven Eleven, major cosmetic stores and mobile phone service stores were established at 148 stations in order to offer our passengers a wider range of services. The SMS lost and found service which is not only finding but also delivering lost articles back to its

owner has launched its service successfully.
At the Yeouido, Gongdeok, Nowon, Gubeundari, Sinheung and Mapo Station, powder rooms and female friendly toilets were opened and from the year 2008, a baby-nursing room with a sofa, a diaper-changing table, etc for women taking care of babies is set up in 53 stations.

At the Dapsimni and Janghanpyeong Station, non-slip carpets are prepared to prevent any safety accidents.

SMRT is so reliable because it is always making efforts to be a female-friendly cultural place.

Not just an ordinary subway station, the 5678 SMRT is a place of gathering. People meet or send letters to their beloved one, enjoy the sight of great pictures or even receive medical attentions. The destination and the visiting purposes might be different, but you will find a happy smile on every face of our passengers.

Noksapyeong Station is an often visited place for leisure and relaxation.

5678 SMRT is an art gallery nurturing the dreams of our children. Go to the Yeuido Station to see the horses or the Cheonho Station to feel the wind, the stars and the spirit of the historical mud castle. Visit this beautiful playground where plenty of space for your imagination is left.

Every day people pass long and grey passageways in the subway stations.

Usually the very dull or advertisement papered passageways do not get much attention from the passengers. However, you will be surprised to see that art is everywhere in our daily life.

Art and culture shall be enjoyed by everybody. Following this aspiration, the wall paintings at various subway stations shall offer our passengers a pleasant service.

At the Kimpo Airport Station at the Subway Line 5, passengers will notice a yellow wall next to the escalator. With the title “Dream of the Vega “, it is characterizing the famous game “Tangram”. The impression of the game which is played by forming different shapes with various wood pieces, is characterized in the dream of the “Vega”.

Furthermore, passengers are able to enjoy more than 315 different art pieces such as the one at the Samgakji Station which is showing the dreams and goals of the Korean people or the painting at the Taereung Station expressing the existence of the human world in connection with time and space. The art piece “New Day” at the Subway Line 8 Jamshil Station is famous for its definition on endless rhythms of life in an unlimited time and space being. However, those paintings are just the beginning of a great cultural infrastructure.

Every step you take at the 5678 SMRT subway station you will find yourself surrounded by numerous art pieces. Just open your eyes and you will see that art is already a part of your daily life.

The 5678 SMRT is a place of warm communication.

With the gentle sound of classical music or the happy excitement of a long waited performance filling the air, the subway station is no longer only a place of transportation. It is a small oasis for everyone in the middle of a large city.

2. We are operating a large network of convenience stores in order to revitalize the shopping areas within the subway stations and to increase company profits. With this business idea not only the profits increased about 1.6 times but also the environment of the subway stations improved dramatically.

Real-Time Management System: 5678 Real-time Information Sharing

◦Management Information System: Personnel Administration | Accounting | Material | Sales

◦Maintenance System: Civil Engineering | Architecture | Electricity | Signal | Communication

3. An important part of safety is the signals.

The signals do not only exist to check the front line but also to control the speed of each train. During

rush hours the train come and go every 2 minutes.

Since the signals has the crucial role in controlling the speed, it is important to always be focused. With

this big responsibility it is necessary to love its job in order to be concentrated.

Up customer-oriented business is leading to greater innovations–

the driving force towards the future of the 5678 SMRT.

5. The Automatic Fare Collection System has been already established for the past 15 years. Very efficient with the least manpower required, we can offer our customer a better and faster service.
