Free toll highways have stimulated demand in Japan & boosted train usage by Japanese customers according to research


"The number of passengers riding shinkansen bullet trains and local trains..during the week of Aug. 11-18 week rose 2% on the year to 9.43 million, marking the first rise in two years...attribute the increase to the government's decision to allow 1,000 yen highway toll discounts only on weekends this year. Last year, the discounts were available every day."
