Nyongwon County in South Phyongan Province is also operating commuter boats.
Today, boats, trains and buses for students can be found in many parts of the DPRK.
According to an official of the Education Commission, last year alone, the number of commuter boats and buses increased according to the state measure.
The country builds schools and branch schools in every part of the country wherever students live, irrespective of their residence, mountain villages or far-flung islands, and their numbers, and runs trains, boats, buses and other transport means for several students.
