High Speed  270km/h

High Speed

The Tokaido Shinkansen achieved the world's first high-speed railway operations when first started in 1964 and takes pride in holding the highest standards in comparison with high-speed railway systems subsequently developed in Europe.
With an average delay of 0.6 minutes we have maintained reliability while operating 323 services per day at a speed of 270km/h since the commencement of commercial operation, and have had no accidents resulting in fatalities.
The following introduces the efforts we are engaged in to ensure high speed.
