Outline

We have long seen problems in many cities in Japan brought by the excessive dependance on automobiles. To realize a sustainable city, we launched direct access service to the center of the city from suburban area. To connect the tram system with the suburban rail system, we introduced new LRV trams named ki-bo and Fukuram(named after the Japanese pronunciation of "hope" and "swell"), with other service improvement. In addition to the rail service improvement, Tawaramachi Station, which is connecting station of tram and train, and surrounding area are being modified to a park.
