TOKYO METROPOLITAN AREA (KANTO) | Public Transport

This thread is dedicated to the urban transport systems of the Greater Tokyo area (so Kanto in general).

Transportation overview
The main transport method in Tokyo is public transit, walking and bicycling with private automobile transportation playing a smaller role. Tokyo has the world's most extensive and heavily used rail network (Rapid Transit and Subways, Commuter rail, Light rail, Monorail, High Speed Rail etc) with most commuters walking or biking to the nearest station. The system for paying is also advanced with NFC cards or phones being used to pay in a second (2.57 million daily transactions), as well as being usable as a credit card in restaurants and many other features. Rail stations, trains and systems are constantly being updated, renovated and expanded. Shinjuku Station is the busiest in the world. Tokyo also has an extensive bus network though it is mostly used as a feeder to rail stations. Pedestrian infrastructure is also well developed with many elevated crosswalks and large bicycle parking buildings. The Tokyo Metro's Ginza Line is the first subway built in Asia, it opened on December 30, 1927.

Rail Statistics
Greater Tokyo rail usage: 40 million passengers daily; 14.6 billion yearly by far the highest in the world.
Tokyo Subway (Metro+Toei) alone: 8.66 million daily; 3.2 billion yearly. Represents 22% of total rail ridership.
For all urban rail there are 49 operators, 146 lines, 4,714.7 km and there are 2,141 stations.

This is SUICA's map (suica is a card that you can use on basically every rail system in the region including buses, vending machines etc).



This is a map made by JR for their museum that I bought and have on my wall: http://i1225.photobucket.com/albums/...s/DSC04934.jpg

Just a quick question: what's the added value of these separate Japanese threads when all these systems are already covered in quashlo's JAPAN|Urban Transport Compilation thread?

Well, as these four separated areas in Japan actually possess some of the most extensive railway systems in the world, they really are justified in having their own threads. Also, according to Jan's latest initiative, he doesn't like large, complex and long compilation threads and advised us to divide them up into smaller, more focused threads. This is good for indexing and for search engines to find relevant results to direct new users to more specific information. Not only that, but it means that developments in parts of Japan outside of these major areas are not as lost in amongst all of the information pertinent to these areas.

Hope that is clear for you.

New York has 3 threads (Subway, Path, Commuter rail), Hong Kong has 3 threads (MTR, Double Decker Trams, Double Decker Busses), and yet Tokyo, the largest urban area on the planet, has to get lumped in to an "All of Japan" thread?

We don't forget about Tokyo city buses.

Most city bus lines inside Tokyo Metropolis are operated by Toei (Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transport). The service is known as To Bus (都バス). Tokyo is one of two cities where the local government operates the bus lines directly.

The system carries 570,000 passengers per day.

Buses in Tokyo began Its operations just after Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 to replace damaged streetcar lines, in a emergency operation with two routes. 1972 was the year which the system operated at its maximum capacity, with 1,298,912 daily passengers.

Nowadays, Toei bus has:

- About 1470 buses, 58% low-floor vehicles. There is no bendy bus in Toei fleet. All buses has two doors and 11 meters of length.
- 138 routes that always connect a train or subway station
- 1,639 bus stops
- 12 depots

The fare is 200 yen. One-day ticket is 500 Yen. Students pay 170 Yen in special school routes. Pasmo card is accepted on Toei buses.

Thanks for the effort. Would take an awfully long time to list all private bus companies and their routes too. Easy to forget the buses due to the extensive rail system but they do fill the gaps.

It is true. We can talk about Kanto buses only when something relevant is reported in the media.

Keisei Railway has Its own bus lines, operated for Japanese vehicles and some German-made Citaro bendy buses:



Japanese commercial vehicles industry don't make bendy buses.

Tokyo Station platform roof to be replaced
Quote:


The entire roof of a JR Tokyo Station platform will be removed and replaced for first time since the station opened in 1914, according to East Japan Railway Co.

A JR East official said the company decided that two of the 14 cast iron pillars holding up the roof will be preserved as a “monument” in recognition that the roof is a historic piece of architecture that survived the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake and the Great Tokyo Air Raid in 1945 during World War II.

Other key moments in history that took place in the station were the assassination of Prime Minister Takashi Hara in 1921 and the attempted assassination of Osachi Hamaguchi in 1930.

The roof covers the platform of tracks No. 5 and No. 6, used by Yamanote Line trains and Keihin Tohoku Line trains bound for Ofuna Station. Although half of the roof was rebuilt after the war, a portion measuring around 12 meters wide and 50 meters long and associated cast iron pillars have been in constant use for a century.

No decision has been made on preserving the 12 other pillars.

I'm glad that JR East is investing some money into their stations. The only thing I noted when I was in Tokyo that could have possibly been a negative or at least a point to be improved upon is the maintenance on their bridges and other such things - just a bit of paint to help stave off rusting. There were a fair few rusting bridges around even in the centre. Seems there is a lot of investment occurring though - Kanda station in particular was in absolute pieces as they were re-doing the whole thing.

OMG, it's so ugly it's cute! Reminds me of:


The pre-MARTA Atlanta Transit System used City Slickers. The orange ones like this weren't air conditioned; the air conditioned ones were a weird pastel lime green. As kids, we called the orange ones "regulars" and the green ones "menthols."

Sorry for the OT diversion. And thanks for this and the other new Japanese threads!

Just for fun here is a 30 minute video I took from JR's Chuo Line going through Tokyo



Looking out the opposite direction



Looking at trains at ochanomizu station



I have dozens of other videos if anyone is interested in me posting them.

Shibuya Station to be rebuilt
APR 16, 2014, BY KAZUAKI NAGATA


Shibuya Station is seen in an image showing how it will look after renovations are done and three new buildings are built, render from JR East

East Japan Railway Co. said it will start laying the groundwork Thursday for wholesale renovations of Shibuya Station in Tokyo that will take more than a decade to complete.

In the end, there will be a new 46-story building with offices and shopping malls, a single platform for Yamanote Line trains heading in opposite directions and easier access to the Saikyo Line, according to JR East.

Four different railway operators use Shibuya Station, one of the busiest stations in the nation’s capital. But “the structure of the station is complex and aging, so it is not really easy to figure out where to go when people transfer,” said Yoichi Suzuki, a JR East spokesman.

Now 350 meters away, after renovations the Saikyo Line platform will be next to a single Yamanote Line platform, vastly shortening transfer times.

Passengers now have to be careful to choose which of the two Yamanote Line platforms they need, depending on where they’re going. One heads for Shinjuku, the other for Shinagawa. Eventually both trains will leave from the same platform.

But it’s anybody’s guess when this will happen. JR East says it doesn’t yet know how long the renovations will take to complete.

Not all changes will be on the inside. Three new buildings are planned outside the station.

A 46-story building will grace the east side by 2020. On the west side, there will be a 13-story building by 2027 and a 10-story building between them.

For now JR East said it’s preparing for the work by securing construction space and repairing the entrance to the Saikyo Line.

The carrier said it aims to begin full-scale construction in fiscal 2015.

Been following this quite closely. The whole area is rather a construction site. In fact, all the way across the JR East network in the centre of Tokyo there are a LOT of improvements and station reconstructions. Thanks for the render (and article).

Ueno Station also deserve a big revitalization, with better connection between Keisei-Ueno, Tokyo Metro and East JR platforms.
