New parking lot for tourist buses will hopefully reduce congestion in Ginza

Kyodo

Parking lot operator Times24 Co. will open a bus parking lot Tuesday near Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood to help reduce congestion caused by coaches carrying foreign tourists to the shopping district.

The 24-hour parking lot with capacity for 11 buses is expected to help reduce congestion caused by buses parking on streets, the company said Monday.

The facility, located in the Harumi area in Chuo Ward, about 3 km from Ginza, will be Times24’s first bus parking lot in the capital.

The company has parking lots for large buses in Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe.
