Tokyo's quake-hit transit system resumes service

A driverless transport system in Tokyo is back in service for the first time since one of its trains derailed following last Thursday's earthquake.

The Nippori-Toneri Liner, an automated guideway transit system, resumed operation from the first scheduled train run on Monday morning.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government, which operates the system, says the service will be scaled back during morning commuting hours because of damage to several cars.
