  1. People are able to change the channel of the internal TV screen that plays ads.
  2. In some carts, instead of open spaces, trains consist of capsule hotel slots where you can rest while you commute if your ride is more than 30 minutes.
  3. A train as long as the track itself that slowly moves forward, like a moving converter belt.
  4. Vending machines in the trains if you get thirsty.
  5. Double-decker trains for more space.
  6. Inside is a tatami mat decor and some carts have a hot spring bath.
  7. A cheaper commute fee where you sit on (or cling on to) the top of the train.
  8. Multiple story train tracks that are laid out on top of each other vertically for multiple trains to run at the same time.
  9. Work booths inside the train for you to get some work done or join a quick teleconference call. Can reserve ahead of time.
  10. Commuters pay tips live to the conductor for the train to go faster.
