Tokyo Metro Launches 17000 Train Series

Tokyo Metro added a new train model to its lineup on February 21.

The 17000 series runs on the Yurakucho and Fukutoshin subway lines. The new trains tilt when stopped at stations to reduce the gap with the platform. All of the train cars have an open area for wheelchairs and baby carriages. Each car is also equipped with four security cameras.
