First self-driving car hub in Japan set for Tokyo's Shinagawa

Downtown location to offer access to maglev train and Haneda

TOKYO -- Japan's transport ministry envisions building the country's first hub for automated vehicles in downtown Tokyo in conjunction with the 2027 start of service on a ultrahigh-speed train line.

Located in bayside Shinagawa, which also offers rail access to Haneda Airport, the hub would initially serve as a pickup and drop-off point for self-driving cars headed to hotels, stores and other local attractions.
