Regional rail

Kwaengdō sits at the centre of Cheryuman-iki's regional railway network. While KC trains stop on every halt on the route (but usually skip simple Ésubān stops), KCP services are an express variant only calling at major stations on the way. Coming from the north, KCS 22 runs like a normal KC up until Hijimēsha, but from there continues like a KCP. Cheryuman-iki regional trains II.png

The agglomeration features an extensive system of Ésubān lines, with a total of 8 lines and two trunk routes (one parallel to the main railway lines and one underground closer to the coast), each of wich carry about 15 trains per hour and direction.

There are two metro lines in the city. The east-west line however is closer in resemblance to a Tokkyaenchoel, since its outer branches (two to the west and one to the east) are operated with level crossings and employ tram-like rolling stock.

Shigájanchoel

The city has an extensive tram system, mostly in the inner city of old Kwaengdō.
