Outline

To expand the public transportation network in the Sendai Urban Area, we have constructed a new connecting route from a point near the Senseki Line’s Takagi-Machi Sta. and to a point near the Tohoku Main Line’s Matsushima Sta., and introduced environment‐friendly diesel hybrid cars, which began service on May 30, 2015. They have enabled us to operate through-trains between the Senseki Line and Tohoku Main Line, and the fastest trains travel between Ishinomaki Sta. and Sendai Sta. in 52 minutes, which is about 10 minutes less than the shortest travel time before the Great East Japan Earthquake.
