Barrier Free Disability Japan Unmanned Stations

“Unmanned” train stations continues to pose problems for people with disabilities in Japan

“The number of “unmanned stations” without station staff all day long has risen to more than 4,500 stations, which is close to half of the stations nationwide, and is still increasing.
Under such circumstances, there are issues such as assistance to people with disabilities, so the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has set up a study group and started discussions for improvement.”
