The Diet enacted on Wednesday a bill to promote construction of large-scale bus and taxi terminals directly connected to train stations.

The bill to revise the Road Traffic Law got through the Upper House by a majority vote with support mainly from the ruling coalition of the Liberal Democratic Party and Komeito.

The revised law allows the private sector to run such terminals using its know-how. Private passenger vehicles will be prohibited from entering such facilities to ensure a smooth flow of bus and taxi traffic.
