[ News, Society, April 4 2008] Korea's bullet train: still growing 4 years after debut

Becoming the fifth country in the world to have a high-speed bullet train service, Korea's bullet train KTX began operating four years ago on Apr. 1, 2004 with the slogan "anywhere in half a day."

Over the past four years, the KTX has run over 23 million kilometers -- an equivalent of over 600 times around the earth. It's carried more than 135 million travelers with a daily average ridership of 100,000 people.
