According to the Ministry of Land and Resources, the unmanned bus started road test from February last year, with a total mileage of 26,000 kilometers. Although several times during the test, it was automatically converted into a man-made driving mode, but it did not cause serious traffic accidents. It is reported that the driving speed of unmanned vehicles on Banqiao section is limited to less than 30 kilometers per hour. Therefore, there is less likelihood of a major security incident. At the same time, it will also arrange for the on-board personnel to purchase auto insurance in advance, just in case.

The Korean Ministry of Land and Resources also plans to launch a driverless bus passenger service in cooperation with Hyundai Motor Group during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics (February 9-25, 2018). On the day of the opening ceremony, the driverless bus will be put into trial operation at the Seoul Toll Station to the Winter Olympics. During the Winter Olympics, it will be opened to the public in Pyeongchang.
