Use of a motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle

The conditions for riding our trains while using a motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle are listed below.

Conditions for stations where a motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle can be used

  • There is at least one route via elevator etc., where there is no difference in level from the ticket gate to the home platform.
  • There is no spot within the route where the passenger has to directly cross a train track.
  • There are no obstacles for the smooth operation of the motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle, such as narrow spaces or rapid turns within the route.
  • Even if a station has specific conditions, it may still be used by a motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle if it passes our companies inspection.
    Stations that meet all of the above conditions have been determined as a station where a motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle can be used. (Refer to "Stations Where a Motorized Wheelchair with a Remote Control Handle Can Be Used" in the table below.)
    Also, even if it is a station where a motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle can be used, we will guide you around the station and assist you when boarding the train.
    Therefore, we ask that you contact a station attendant when using our stations.

Request for using our stations

  1. Please apply for assistance by 6:00 p.m. of the previous day.
  2. It may take some time for us to be able to guide/assist you. Please arrive at the station with plenty of time to spare.

  5. You may not board the First Class Car.
  6. Depending on the shape and dimension of your motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle, you may not be able to use the station. An example of this would be if the motorized wheelchair with a remote control handle does not fit in the elevator.
