TX embraces the concept of universal design — easy to use, easy to access, easy to understand, easy for everyone. The following are some major features of TX’s universal design.
Equipment in the station
All TX displays are in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean. Station displays are color coded — navy blue for signs leading to platforms, yellow for signs leading to exits — so they can be recognized easily by all users.
All TX stations have a corresponding station number, from 01 for Akihabara to 20 for Tsukuba, so they can be understood easily by first-time users and even children.
TX restrooms are equipped with a diaper changing table, ostomate facilities, and more, so they are convenient for everyone.
Audio and Braille signs
TX concourses and restroom entrances are fitted with audio and Braille signs. Ticket vending machines, stair handrails, and automated platform gates also have Braille signs.
