By Bus from Incheon Airport
* The last Airport bus leaves Incheon at 22:30. If you miss the last bus, please call us so that we can help you.

After leaving Customs and Immigration, find an Information desk and ask for directions to bus number 6011. It should be departing the airport from stop 5B or 12A.
Before the bus arrives, an attendant will ask you where you are going, put a sticker on your luggage, and hand you a claim ticket.
When the bus arrives, tell the driver you are going to SungKyunKwan, or show him the following sentence in Korean:
창경궁 지나 대학로 성균관 대학교역에서 내려주세요!
(Just after Changkyunggung, please let me off at SungKyunKwan station.
The bus costs 10,000 won, which you can pay with cash or a T-Money card.

Aboard the bus, sit near the front and look for the 'Stop' button above your head. The bus only stops if someone pushes that button, so listen carefully for 'SungKyunKwan', and press the button when you hear it. The stop will be a little more than an hour away from the airport.
*** If you get confused or think you have missed your stop, ask the driver: 'SungKyunKwan?' He will hopefully speak English or be able to motion that the stop is farther ahead.

As you get off the bus, hand your claim ticket to the driver and collect your bags.
