Procurement at Tokyo Metro

Tokyo Metro is responsible for a core part of the railway network in the Tokyo Metropolitan area. We own and operate nine subway lines with 195.1 kilometers of track, used by more than 7 million passengers every day.

Valuing every passenger who use our network, we are committed to provide better services that are safe, secure, and comfortable. In order to achieve this goal, we have established the "Tokyo Metro Procurement Policy", which forms the basis of our procurement activities. It is our policy to ensure optimal procurement practices with a broad, global perspective when sourcing goods and services, in a transparent, fair, and impartial manner that ensures high quality.

Also, we have established the "Tokyo Metro Procurement Guidelines", which set out a specific day-to-day code of conduct for putting our Procurement Policy into practice.
