To help people travel in greater safety and comfort between cities, Hitachi offers advanced solutions for railway rolling stock design and manufacture, operations management, monitoring and control, information services, and maintenance, as well as road and airport management and control.

The Railway is at the Core of Every City

Maybe train tracks don't go on forever, but they do need to develop as the cities around them grow. At Hitachi, we use advanced information technologies to build world-leading trains and rail systems that connect people and help communities thrive. We also create new services that enrich lives by linking trains to various levels of the social infrastructure.
