Parking lot business

City planned parking lot business ventures

We enhance and expand city planned parking lot businesses at five locations (about 2,300 vehicles) in Tokyo that form the foundation of urban transport. Furthermore, we improve customer convenience by means such as setting reasonable tolls, setting up parking spaces for motorcycles, and registering for information services for parking lot availability.

Business ventures in parking areas

20 parking areas have been set up for customers' comfortable use of the Metropolitan Expressway, and we have developed urban parking areas with improved restaurants and shops that allow for relaxed customer visits.
The parking areas where restaurants are operated have improved their menu, holding seasonal menu, etc.
Some parking areas have also introduced the multi-functional vending machine "vending machine convenience store ASD*" which offers various product types including chilled products such as rice balls and sandwiches.
