How many passengers take high-speed rail in Japan each year?



  1. 0 Votes

    About 335 million people ride Japan’s high-speed rail system every year. The country is the world’s number two user of passenger rail, with only Switzerland transporting more people on its high-speed rail system. Considering Japan’s long history of experience with rail technology, and the fact that the US is Japan’s number one destination for exports, Japan is likely to play an important role in helping the US develop a viable system of high-speed rail as well. The Democratic Party of Japan apparently sees exporting rail technology to the US as a major tool for bolstering Japan’s economy. If this occurs on a large scale, it will also help the US accomplish the Obama Administration’s goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on foreign oil.
