The state-of-the-art cars of the Nagoya City Subway in Aichi Prefecture are ready to be delivered to the City Traffic Bureau's factory from May 13.

The new subway has six cars with more accessibility for persons with disabilities; the wider space for the person with wheelchair by 3 times in each car, the guidance lamp which tells the Deaf passenger when the door closes/opens is installed in the upper part of the door.

The new subway is due to come out through a test run in June.
