When taking the AREX passengers have a choice between two trains the Express and the Commuter. While the Express seems to be the obvious choice the price changes are drastic. Taking the Express Train from Seoul Station will cost you 13,300 won. This is 4 times the price of the Commuter Train, but the train is only 10 minutes faster than the commuter. Yes that's right, the Express Train is 43 minutes from Seoul Station to Incheon for a price of 13,300 won, while the Commuter Train takes 53 minutes and costs 3,700 won.
|The Commuter Train costs 3,700 won and takes 53 minutes from Seoul Station.|
If you're not worried about an extra 10 minute travel time and don't mind a subway style train the Commuter Train is just as great for the lower price. The train will make stops along the way at major subway stations such as Gimpo, and Hongik University. If you still wish to check your bags ahead of time, you may pay an extra fee of 3,000 won. Otherwise roll your bags on and enjoy the ride. Trains come every 13 minutes.
When entering Seoul Station from the Seoul Station Subway you need to follow the KTX terminal signs which will lead you outside. Go up all the escalators, you will exit the subway completely to enter the Seoul Station Train Terminal. Once inside of the KTX terminal walk all the way to the back and turn left for the Airport Railroad. To see exact times of the trains and more information visit The KORAIL Airport Railroad Website.
