iPad. Helping all the trains run safely.

With over 190 kilometres of track, Tokyo Metro subway lines are known for delivering their passengers quickly, reliably and rarely ever with a delay. And with over 4 million daily passengers in 2020, smooth operations require important infrastructure maintenance, frequent tunnel inspections, and budgeting and planning years into the future. Crews used to carry field inspection books and digital cameras deep below the city. Now with only iPad, they can complete their duties in real time and repair plans can begin the next day.
