• Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central)

The Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central), established in April 1987, is a publicly-traded, privately owned rail company serving the most populous region of Japan. JR Central is the creator and operator of the world-renowned N700 Shinkansen, and operator of the world’s busiest high-speed rail line, the Tokaido Shinkansen, which despite serving over 140 million passengers a year has had no fatalities due to train accidents, and has an average delay of less than one minute.


JR Central is also the current lead in the development of the revolutionary Superconducting Maglev (SCMAGLEV) system, and is currently developing and privately financing the Chuo Shinkansen between Tokyo and Nagoya.


These systems are the product of years of research, innovation and optimization through successive generations of commercially proven high-speed rail operations in Japan.
