New York vs. Tokyo’s Subway: How Japan Got So Far Ahead | U.S. vs. Japan | WSJ

Japan’s train system is ranked the most efficient in the world, according to Statista. The United States is tied with Azerbaijan for 11th best. Part of this is because Japan’s railway system has more points of connection allowing for easier commutes. A New York City subway ride often features a transfer before reaching your final destination.

Why does the MTA operate at a loss while Tokyo Metro is profitable? WSJ explains how Japan’s transportation system got so far ahead and runs so smoothly.
