Seoul Subway Line 9 is a subway line in Seoul. Originally scheduled to open in June 12, 2009, the line was opened on July 24, 2009.[1]

Line 9 runs east from Gaehwa Station(begin All-stop train), Gimpo Airport Station(begin Express train) (connecting to Line 5 and AREX) along the south bank of the Han River, and will be opened in three phases. Construction of Phase 1, between Gaehwa and Sinnonhyeon, began in April 2002 and opened in July 24 2009. Major transfer points on the first phase are Dangsan (Line 2), Yeouido (Line 5), Noryangjin (Line 1 via Gyeongbu Line), Dongjak (Line 4), and Express Bus Terminal (Line 3 & Line 7) Stations.

Phase 2 will extend from Gangnam to Sports Complex Station on Line 2, while Phase 3 will run to Bangi Station in eastern Seoul. While Phase 2 was always planned to go ahead as scheduled, a Seoul Metropolitan Government website at one point described construction of phase 3 as being suspended in consideration of transport demand and financial situations.[2] On November 20, 2008, however, the Seoul Metropolitan government announced plans to build Phase 3 between October 2010 and December 2015.[3]

Line 9 is a double track subway with bypass tracks at some stations to enable express trains running at three per hour in each direction. All stations except Gaewha and Magongnaru are equipped with elevators, escalators and platform screen doors. It is the first privately run subway line in Korea, operated by Veolia Transport.

This operating company is in talks with AREX to connect the line directly with the AREX line as the Korean government strongly recommends it. The two companies have agreed to go along with this recommendation, and decided to start making a direct connection in 2011. Currently there is a free transfer between these two lines, but the trains do not continue onward between the lines yet.
