Soooo this post is no longer necessary. Kobus.co.kr now comes in English! And you can reserve tickets from the English site woot.
Up to this point, my other Korean-American friend and I have been buying bus tickets for our friends because they can’t navigate the Kobus site. You can access the site in English and view buses, but you can only purchase them on the Korean site. So, I thought I’d make an updated version of how to buy bus tickets…with pictures! whooooo
Although Google Chrome users can Google translate to make the process easier I thought this would still be helpful. Aight, so I linked to the Korean site above. Here’s how it works.
You’ll need to know a little bit of Korean in order to input your departure and arriving city, OR you can just remember your city code (e.g. Busan ) when using the English site.
For the next page:
The bottom portion of the site is the same as the English site. I’ve posted the English ver. right below the Korean ver.
So, head to the next page by clicking “select” of the bus you want. Hit OK on the next pop-up window to continue. Scroll down and you can pick the seats you want.
Once you picked your seats, scroll further down to find the payment options. I suggest paying with your card.
Hit confirm and you’re done!
To pick up tickets, go to your departure bus station ticket counter and let them know you already bought tickets and need to pick them up. You only need to give them the card you used to pay for the tickets. And that’s it!
I hope this guide was helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions!
