Reduction of in-vehicle sales

In recent years, JR East has reduced in-vehicle sales due to a decrease in in-vehicle sales usage.[58].. As of March 2015, 3, we discontinued in-car sales at "Fresh Hitachi" and "Narita Express" north of Yamagata Station for "Nasu-no-no", "Tanigawa", "Max Tanigawa", and "Tsubasa"[58].. Next, as of March 2019, 3, sales of dancer, Nikko, Kinugawa, Spacia Kinugawa, Kusatsu, and Inaho north of Sakata Station, as well as Kagayaki and Hakutaka Shinkansen trains sold in all trains except for Azusa, Kaiji, Hitachi, Super View Odoriko, and Inaho, lunch boxes, snacks (sandwiches), desserts and souvenirs south of Sakata station.

In addition, as of June 6, the same year, we stopped selling lunch boxes, snacks (sandwiches), desserts, souvenirs, and miscellaneous items at Kagayaki and Hakutaka. Stopped selling hot coffee on the train[65].

For regular trains

Taken over from the old Japanese National Railways in large quantities103 seriesRemained to the end in October 2009Sengoku LineAll operations including the above have been completed, and old vehicles centered on other old Japanese National Railways type vehicles are also being sequentially released in the Greater Tokyo Area.E231 series,E233 series,E531 seriesWhile we are proceeding with the selection by introducing such as, we are allocating good-quality vehicles to replace aged vehicles in other regions (209 series,211 seriesSuch). During the JNR era, priority was given to the metropolitan areas of Tokyo and Osaka when replacing rolling stock, and when replacing aged rolling stock, relatively good rolling stock was diverted to rural areas, and this system was maintained even after the inauguration of JR. Because it is.

For trains, until the 1990s, the classification of ordinary train cars by use wasCommuter typeSuburban typeFor the first time in the E2000 series, which started commercial operation in 231, the formal distinction between commuter type and suburban type was abolished.[66],General formIs unified to[67][68][69][70][71][72][Note 22].. Detail is"General-type vehicle (railway) #The appearance of general-purpose trains and afterSee.

The company's general-purpose vehicles for transportation within urban areas are based on economic vehicles that have undergone a major overhaul of design and manufacturing methods from conventional vehicles to reduce manufacturing costs. This is a method for setting a short vehicle replacement cycle for the purpose of immediately reflecting the trends of the times in service provision, and the Keihin Tohoku Line in 1992 (Heisei 4).901 series (later 209 series)Is the beginning. This design orientation has been adopted not only by the company but also by some other companies'station vehicles in the Kanto area, and the basic design of the E231 series and E233 series has been adopted in multiple vehicles of other companies' stations, reducing vehicle manufacturing costs. Also contributes.

With the expansion of the commuting area, long-seat cars were introduced to the suburbs to alleviate congestion, and the capacity per train was improved. This policy has spread to local routes, and we are working to improve the capacity and optimize the number of vehicles required. On the other hand, in non-electrified lines, the transportation volume may be small, so diesel railcarsKiha 40 seriesFor the Aterazawa Line, except for a part of the long seatKiha 101 typeAnd for the Kururi LineKiha E130 seriesIt remains in the 100s only. However, perhaps the extreme long seating of introducing even local routes was overkill,2000 eraSince the latter half, local routes are returning to semi-cross-seat vehicles (701 series →E721 seriesThe flow is an example. The 209 series has also been partially converted to a semi-cross sheet when converted to the Boso area).

For excellent trains and bullet trains

Express trains are shifting from the initial policy of introducing vehicles with specialized specifications for each route to a policy of standardized design that enables universal use. this isShinkansen vehicleThe same applies to the policy of unifying the vehicles used for each line section.1990 eraAfter the latter half of the full standardE2 series-E7 series, Of the Mini ShinkansenE3 seriesIs introduced mainly. Also, as of 2020, there is no regular operation of the limited express railcars, so the only six JR passengers do not own limited express railcars.[Note 23].

In addition, the body of the limited express type vehicle is ordinary steel orAluminum alloyIs often used, and compared to other JR companies, it is a limited express typestainlessSince there are few cases of using the car body, it is recommended to use it in all model cars.E26 series passenger carIs only[Note 24].

Limited express vehicleGreen carIn the vehicle after the establishment of JR, it was arranged in 2 rows of 1+3 people, and other JR companies also followed,255 seriesSubsequent vehicles have four rows of seats for 2+2 people except for a part. This is because the number of green cars used in the Tokyo metropolitan area is high[77][Note 25].

As another feature, in other railway companies, when non-working managers (managers, section chiefs, etc.) and officers wear uniforms, they often wear the same uniforms / caps as the station managers and station managers. However, in JR East, they wear the same uniforms and caps as regular employees (even if the president wears uniforms, they have the same uniforms and caps as regular employees).Royal trainAtEmperorThe president of JR East is wearing a suit to lead His Majesty.

From 2000 to 2011, 1st place-8th place was almost unchanged (Shinbashi station and Omiya station have been replaced in some years). Especially in 2011, the number one place compared to the previous yearShinjuku StationFrom 27thMachida StationThere was no change in ranking.

However, in 2012, the number of passengers at Tokyo Station, which had been consistently at 1999th place since 5 (open to the public), increased with the redevelopment project, and overtaken Yokohama Station to 4th place. In 2013, Shibuya StationTokyu Toyoko Line-Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin LineThe number of passengers decreased by more than 3 due to the direct train, and it fell below 25 for the first time in 40 years. I will be worried about the dust. In addition, in the same year newlyKitasenju Station Takadanobaba StationOvertaken, achieved the first 10 best.

Shinagawa Station has been steadily growing in number of users, and was in 6th place for a long time, but it was 2016th place in FY5.

At Shibuya station, the number of users has not stopped, and as mentioned above, it fell from 2013rd place to 3th place in 5, and was overtaken by Shinagawa station in 2016 and fell to 6th place. In 2008Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin LineAt the time of opening, there is a downward trend with Ikebukuro Station,Tokyu Toyoko LineIkebukuro station is picking up after the direct operation of, but Shibuya station is not so inclined.

Ueno Station is in 2015Ueno Tokyo LineDue to the opening of traffic (passengers not getting on and off at Ueno Station), the number of passing passengers increased, so there was concern that the number of users would decrease.Tokaido LineThe number of users is increasing, due to the ease of access from the direction.

Osaki station was a single station on the Yamanote line in 2000, and the number of passengers was about 5, but after the opening of the Saikyo line, Shonan Shinjuku line, and Rinkai line in December 2002, the number of users gradually increased, In 12Yurakucho Station,Tachikawa StationI overtook 2 stations and jumped to 14th place.

Akihabara station was 2000th as of 17,Tsukuba ExpressThere is also the opening of business in 2006Ueno StationI pulled out and entered the best 10. Furthermore, in 2007, it passed Takadanobaba Station and has been steadily increasing its number of users since then. On the other hand, Ueno Station was ranked in the top 2005 until 10, but was overtaken by Takadanobaba Station in 2006. From 2007, Kitasenju StationKawasaki StationIt fell to 13th place after.

At stations in the Tohoku region, due to the Great East Japan Earthquake, the number of passengers at Sendai station decreased by more than 1, and other stations recorded no data. However, since 2012, most stations have recorded increases, especially at Sendai station.Sengoku LineAoba Dori StationIt became the largest number of passengers after opening.
