Operation and Maintenance: Reviewing Operations in Preparation for a 20% Reduction in the Working-age Population 

It is now possible to efficiently conduct maintenance and other repair procedures in a timely fashion while frequently collecting and analyzing rolling stock and equipment data in order to check its safety. Currently, we are progressing steadily towards implementing these procedures by introducing new trains, such as the Yamanote line's new E235 series model, and furthering progress on automated driving, robotization, AI and other operation support technologies.

Moving forward, we will prepare for the decline in the working-age population, using these technological innovations to reform cost structures and implement the best mix of people and systems.
