▲ Students are getting on the homecoming busses for the Chuseok holiday
The Student Welfare Committee at UOS provided the 4th homecoming bus service for the Chuseok holiday, from Sept. 16 to Sept. 17, as one of its welfare projects. This is an annual event which intends to reduce the travel time and provide convenience for students whose hometowns are far from Seoul.

Since the event was originally proposed and implemented by the Student Welfare Committee Union from seven different universities including UOS, the departing points of all the busses were confined to the related universities. However, the starting places were carefully determined with the flow of traffic in consideration to minimize the movement of the busses.

UOS sold bus tickets at a 30 to 40 percent reduced price. In addition to the reasonable ticket price, some snacks, lunchboxes, and bottled water were provided to the passengers. There was also an assigned conductor for each bus who called the roll, distributed snacks and lunchboxes, and such. In comparison to an express bus, the charted busses did not have much legroom and gave a rough ride.

Moreover in some cases, the bus made a brief stop along the way ? for example, the bus went to Gangneung via Wonju ? which made the ride longer for some students. Every year, the homecoming busses for the Chuseok Holiday pass through Gyeongsang-do, Chungchong-do, Jeolla-do and Gangwon-do. Students at UOS can buy a one-way or a round-trip ticket at the Student Welfare Committee Center. Proxy requests are not allowed under any condition, and all tickets are non-transferable. Plus, the tickets are sold by order of arrival, as there is no reservation system.
