Project Description:
The Tokyo Subway (chikatetsu) is one of the world's most extensive metro/subway systems. The two primary networks are operated by Tokyo Metro Co. Ltd (8 lines) and Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation (4 lines).

As of September 2005, there were 168 train stations operated by Tokyo Metro, with an average of 5.69 million passengers per day. They employ 8,721 staff, and the busiest station is Shinjuku (which is also the world's busiest, and second largest, with an estimated traffic of 2 million passengers per day).
