COMMUTING 通勤

Q. How can I commute to
my workplace?

A.You can use trains, buses, and the like to commute to work. Many people who commute to work in Tokyo catch the train. Because trains run at scheduled times, you can commute to your workplace without delay. Since travel by motorcycle or car involves the risk of traffic congestion and difficulty finding parking, fewer people commute to work this way. Also, when making visits to clients or business partners, you can plan to use train travel more strategically than by car.
During the peak morning commuting period, many extra train services are scheduled and trains often depart at intervals of three to five minutes. The system has been designed so that a large number of commuters can travel in comfort.
