The Ui LRT, referred to as the Ui-Sinseol LRT in Korean, is a light metro which is part of Seoul Metropolitan Railway. It is a fully underground[1] 11.4 km (7.1 mi) Light Rapid Transit line from Ui-dong to Sinseol-dong in northern Seoul which opened on September 2, 2017.[3] The line, which is expected to carry 110,000 passengers a day, has 13 stations. It connects to Line 4 at Sungshin Women's University, Line 6 at Bomun and Line 1 & 2 at Sinseol Dong.[4] The last (northernmost) station is in Ui-dong, hence the name of the line.

The line uses a dedicated fleet of 18 trains built by Rotem, a member of Hyundai Motor Group. Each train consists of 2-car trains and runs unmanned, similar to the trains used on Vancouver's Canada Line.[1][2][5]
