Japan's new largest bus terminal has media debut

posted on March 26, 2016

A new express bus terminal in central Tokyo will open early next month. The new facility will have the most arrivals and departures in all of Japan.

The terminal, which is located beside the major railway and subway stations of Shinjuku, was shown to media on Friday. It is to open on April 4th.

The transport ministry constructed the terminal to consolidate 19 main express bus stops, which were spread out in the area. It cost about 620 million dollars.

The 4-story facility will serve about 1,600 arrivals and departures per day.

118 operators will run express buses to and from 39 prefectures across Japan. Limousine buses connecting with Haneda and Narita airports will also use the terminal.
