Working on the Move by Rail
The pandemic has accelerated the trend of remote work and web conferences, but this has led to a decrease in commuting and business trips. To make a comeback, JR companies are offering share offices and spaces inside station facilities, and on the shinkansen (such as the Tokaido and Tohoku shinkansen), passengers can participate in online meetings and calls. Also, other railway companies are creating workspaces at stations located in residential areas. See how railway companies are coming up with unique ideas to meet the growing demand for new work styles and overcome these difficult times.
