Transport for Tokyo 2020

Recommended Posts

What are the transport plans for Tokyo 2020?

The Heritage zone the transport is relatively clear as they are existing venues served by Metro mostly.

Tokyo Bay, the transport isn't obvious at all. Take the swimming or gymnastics venues for instance... Will they use the Oedo line, the docklands light railway (Yunikamomo Line) or buses?

The gymnastics center would be served by the Yurikamome. Alternatively, there's the Rinkai Line, which would take a bit of walking (going past the Tennis venues), but may be more convenient as a direct option from Western Tokyo (heritage areas).

If the the location of the aquatics center isn't changed, it could be accesible via the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line or the JR Keiyo Line. Again, a Rinkai Line service would do the job if you're not too lazy. All three lines converge at Shin Kiba Station for easy transfers between competiton venues around Tokyo Bay. Furthermore, the terminus of the Yurikamome in the bay allows a transfer to the Yurakucho Line.

Hi, new member & this will be my 1st time to ANY Olympics.  I'll have a Tokyo Metro Transportation Pass, but don't know anything else yet.

I'm pretty sure you have to purchase that.
