In Dubai and South Korea different well establish transport system occur which differ in the manner of their coordination. The paper provides the comparison between transportation in Dubai and South Korea by looking at advantages and disadvantages of transportations in the countries.

In both countries transportation by bus is slow as compared to the use of train and in mainly for serving the low income earners (Arsov, 2015). The bus transportation means in both countries also has the ability to serve every corner of the city in serving the citizens. Both countries are endorsed with the wide range of transportation methods ranging from walking to the airplane usage. Both countries have the credit charging facilities which make it easier for payment of fare as well as having strategized places for recharging the cards (De Filippi, 2015). In South Korea there are well established several local air transport while in Dubai, the local air transport is reduced due to the reduced number of local airports. In Dubai, there is a well-defined system penalty charge on passengers who move past their destination while in South Korea, the penalty is not defined due to the rare case of passing the destination due to distinction of the buses (Matsumoto & Lieshout, 2016). In Dubai there is a well-established and comprehensive network for trains with class categorization while in South Korea the train transportation has not comprehensive network for the train. In Both countries, car transportation is not recommended for the visitors (Shin et al. 2015).

From the comparison, it is clear that transportation in both Countries is more of similar with few differences.
