'No Driving Day' in Seoul Means Free Transit Rides
"South Korea will enforce an alternate no driving day restriction in the capital city to cope with high levels of fine dust in the atmosphere, the government said Sunday," reports The Korea Times.
"The fine dust related restrictions first introduced in February of last year was last issued on Dec. 30," according to the article.
As part of the no driving day, commuters are offered free rides on public transit. More background on the program, and its public transit perk, is available in an article by Kim Je-gwan from May 2017.
