Keihin Electric Express Railway Co Ltd
Keihin Electric Express Railway Co., Ltd. (commonly known as Keikyu), is one of the 15 major private railways in Japan. Serving as a link between central Tokyo and the southern metropolitan area, the Company plays an important role in Tokyo's public transportation system. Keikyu carries approximately 1.16 million passengers daily on its 87.0-kilometer railway network linking Shinagawa, which is expected to see even further development in the near future as one of Tokyo's sub-central towns, with Kawasaki, Yokohama, Yokosuka, Zushi, and Miura in Kanagawa Prefecture. In October 2003, a new station for the Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train was opened at Shinagawa Station-the Company's main terminus station. In November 1998, Keikyu achieved its long-standing goal of providing railway services to Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport). With the opening of Haneda Airport Station, Keikyu has been instrumental in greatly improving access to the airport. Since its opening, the number of passengers using the station each day has continued to rise, and by December 2004, the cumulative total number of passengers had exceeded 120 million. In December 2004, accompanying the opening of the second terminal at Haneda Airport, Keikyu established a new ticket gate. Furthermore, in response to the re-extension and internationalization of Haneda Airport, the Company is considering the construction of a new station linked directly to the new international terminal building.
