EFFICIENCY IN TOKYO TRAIN TRANSPORTATION
In Japan, train transportation have an important role. With 16 lines on the ground, 13 lines underground, some private railways company such as Yurikamome Line, Shinkansen track and city to airport train, let say we have 35 lines are running around Tokyo City. The train systems are becoming the most busiest train transportation in the world.
We also created queue line, even our discipline in not questionable ( just in case there is a naughty passenger ).
I saw this kind of queue line also in Singapore… Bravo Singapore…
Train’s departure time is ontime as written in schedule. In peak hours in the morning, when everybody go to the office, the Yamanote Line ( on the ground ) is running every 1 minute. Subway Line is running about 3 – 5 minutes depends on the line. Usually we have to transfer either transfer to another subway line or transfer to JR Line (on the ground)….. we are ready to RUN for transferring. Sound ridiculous but time is so precious here….
The train company help us with the information as below :
The information shows how many cars, the nearest escalator or lift from car number…etc..etc…
It’s very helpful for a commuter…. because we have to run …run…run…
Oopps one more thing, avoid doing this on the train ( see picture below ) :
Do you agree ?
