At the time of December 2010, there was a statement on JR Shikoku's own website that there were no plans to introduce an IC boarding card for the time being.[25]..Therefore, until March 2012, 3, it was the only JR passenger railway company to offer "SuicaI couldn't use any other JR companies or IC card that can be used interchangeably with them.The other three companies that had agreed on the Shikoku common card areTakamatsu Kotohira Electric RailwayBut"IruCa"(Dolphin),Iyo RailwayBut"IC card"Tosa Electric RailwayBut"Are youWe issue IC boarding cards that can be used on each company's buses and railroads.

At this point, President Masafumi Izumi introduced ICOCA at both Takamatsu and Sakaide stations in advance, and then introduced his own IC boarding card by FY2014. I want to be able to use it in common with the card. "[35].

After that, on July 2012, 7, JR Shikoku announced that it plans to introduce ICOCA to a part of the Yosan Line and the Seto Ohashi Line from the spring of 30 with JR West.[36]..In addition, in order to reduce the investment burden and promote mutual use, we decided to introduce "ICOCA" instead of introducing our own IC card, and we will consider the introduction of commuter passes and the expansion of target stations after carefully examining the usage situation after introduction.

On December 2010, 12, it was announced that the smoking room of the limited express train would be abolished by the timetable revision in March 17, and the inside of the car will be completely non-smoking.[88]..

In addition, for management rationalization, even if it is a limited express stop stationMujin-eki(Some stations become unmanned stations only in the early morning and at night), and at unmanned stations, train tickets and limited express tickets can be used by conductors (multiple people are on board) at the station platform or in-car ticket gate.

In-car sales

Including limited expressIn-car salesWas once abolished in October 2003[62](At that timeShikoku KioskandShitetsu campus businessThe person in charge) was reopened on a trial basis from March 2009, 3 on a short section of the limited express on the Yosan Line and Dosan Line, and officially revived on August 19 of the same year with "Shiokaze" and "Nanpu".Even after the resurrection, business was limited to a short section of Marugame Station-Kan-Onji Station, Marugame Station-Kotohira Station.The salesperson said "AnpanmanFive types of bento boxes such as "bento boxes", canned beer, coffee, and sweets were placed on carts and patrolled.Sales time is from around 5 am to evening[89]..After the revival, the group company Takamatsu Ekiben (dissolved in September 2014) was in charge, but since June 9, it has been taken over by Station Create East Shikoku.[90]..However, it was abolished again with the timetable revision on March 2019, 3, and it ended 16 years after the resurrection.[91].

One-man driving

Within the JR Shikoku jurisdictionOne manAll trains are at manned stationsdoorIt is "rear ride / front disembarkation" without opening.Even at the first train station, only the rear door in the direction of travel is open, and at the first train stationNumbered ticketWill also be issued.However, if the terminal station is a manned station, all doors may be opened.In addition, there are many passengers at stations along the way.Kotoku LineThere are exceptional times when trains arriving at Takamatsu Station will drop off passengers from other doors.This is because before 2008, the holders of tickets and commuter passes were also required to take numbered tickets, but the handling has not changed since then. From the timetable revision on March 2008, 3, only customers who do not have a ticket or commuter pass can get a numbered ticket.If you are a one-person operator and do not have a ticket, commuter pass, or numbered ticket, you will be charged the fare from the first station.

Of stationLEDformulaDeparture markBut I made it clear that it was a one-man train,In-car broadcasting, We are also promoting to get a numbered ticket on the station broadcast.Also, at the boarding doorsensorWhen a person is detected, a device that announces "Please take a numbered ticket" is installed to prevent forgetting to take it.

There used to be a two-car one-man operation on the Kotoku Line, but now there is no two-car one-man train.Even if the one-man train is a two-car train, the vehicles that are behind in the direction of travel areForwardingIt is closed as a vehicle and cannot be boarded.Depending on the train, two-man (two-man) at the first stationconductorIn some cases, the operation was a one-man operation (or vice versa) with the deadline for the second car at the station on the way.

One-man trainTrain numberIs unified in the 4000s.Kojima Station-All lines in Shikoku except between Utazu Station are operated by one-man operation mainly on trains during off-hours.There are also "section one-man" trains where the conductor is on board only on weekday crowded sections, trains that are two-man on all sections only on weekdays, and trains that are treated as one-man operations but not handled by the conductor as mobile ticket gates.In this case, the conductorIn-car replenishment ticketRelease, specialTicket gate, Supports ticket collection when getting off, but does not handle doors or driving such as in-car broadcasting.

In addition, from the timetable revision on March 2012, 3, instead of the conductor, on some rapid and ordinary trains on the Yosan Line and Dosan Line.Flight attendantInstead of having a (attendant) on board to collect tickets and sell them in the car, the driver handles the doors as in the conventional one-man system, so-calledUrban one-manTrains using a method similar to[Note 5]..This train is assigned a train number in the 5000s (excluding the Sunrise Seto) and is compatible with this one-man system (as of 2012).121 series one-man modified car) Is in operation.Such a method has been used in JR Shikoku as well as in Marine Liner and some limited express trains since around 2009, but it is strictly different because the conductor is on board with the attendant on these trains.

In this method, unlike the conventional method,Station clerkAll cars and doors will be opened regardless of the presence or absence of cars and the number of cars, and no numbered tickets will be issued.In-car broadcasts will also be guided by automatic broadcasts, except that the attendant will collect tickets at unmanned stations and sell tickets in the car as mentioned above.DriverIs done by.As an aid to these, a system was introduced to prevent passengers getting on and off from being accidentally caught in the door by installing sensors on the doors and installing monitors in addition to conventional mirrors at some stations. ing.

JR Shikoku has indicated that it will continue to expand the introduction of new one-man trains such as those mentioned above.[92].

As a thing peculiar to JR Shikoku, the vehicles (trains and railcars) newly built and introduced after the introduction of JRVehicle type,Vehicle numberCan be mentioned. While other JR companies basically inherit the numbering system of the JNR era, it is major in JR Shikoku.Major private railwaySimilar to the above, all are attached with only 4-digit numbers for each car model, and no symbols indicating the car model such as "Kiha", "Moha", and "Kuroha" are used.

In addition,2600 series-5000 series-7200 series-8600 seriesExcept for the Japanese National Railways type such as "Four Kama"AbbreviationAffiliationDepotThere is no notation.Diesel trains instead have the same ward name card as locomotives, but trains do not.Initially, even the type notation of security devices was eliminated, but now it isATS-SS"SS" indicating installation (5100 type isJR EastThere is a notation of Ss in the style, and S) in the Japanese National Railways style for the 5000 type.This had the meaning of distinguishing it from vehicles not equipped with ATS-SS.

On the other hand, the vehicles inherited from the Japanese National Railways are registered as "Japanese National Railways".NameplateStill remains[Note 6].

After the launch of vehicle coloring, passenger vehicles, regardless of trains, passenger cars, or diesel cars, are in corporate color except for some types.light blueIt was changed to the one that wore. Since the latter half of the 2000s, the number of vehicles that do not have aqua color is increasing, regardless of whether they are renewed or newly built.

The company's vehicle is only in Okayama prefecture of JR West. JR Shikoku has the smallest number of prefectures other than its own area where its own vehicles enter among the six JR passenger companies.

Like JR Central and JR Hokkaido, there are no 4-door cars.

The following points are the only JR Shikoku Railway Company that operates passenger business.

Up to 1500 type, the manufacturer of the vehicle is not fixed and it changes for each type, and the five major companies (Kawasaki Heavy Industries,Kinki Vehicle,Tokyu vehicle manufacturing,Japanese vehicle manufacturing,Hitachi, Ltd.) With everythingNiigata Ironworks,Niigata Transis,Fuji Heavy IndustriesThere are 8 companies including the ones that have placed orders, but since the 8600 series, both trains and railcars have been manufactured by Kawasaki Heavy Industries.

As of August 2019, 8, all 31 series cars have been scrapped.[74][75]As a result, all commercial trains owned by JR ShikokuVVVF inverter controlIt became a car.Also, all trainsAll stainless vehicleBoth are the first cases in the JR Group.

In addition, it is the second in the JR Group after JR Hokkaido that all the types of trains manufactured during the JNR era have disappeared.However, it was manufactured during the JNR era and later7200 seriesWas remodeled into121 seriesTherefore, the vehicle itself still exists.

Currently"Hanshin round-trip free ticketThe focus is on business-like tickets aimed at promoting special tickets, but for a while since the opening of the Seto Ohashi Line in 1988, it is a well-known national district.talentSightseeing campaign with the image characterCMWas created, not only in the Shikoku / Okayama areaCapital Area-Kinki areaEach ofTV stationBut it was aired.

In 1987, the CM "Aisa Rail Tomorrow to JR Shikoku", which was produced by the General Bureau of the Japanese National Railways Shikoku at that time, used an image of the Seto Ohashi Line marine section, which was still under construction.This was controversial as it gave viewers the misunderstanding that the Seto Ohashi Line would open at the same time as the new company was launched.

マ ス コ ッ ト

This mascot series is a characterized version of the JR Shikoku station building, and was created in June 2013 by the Customer Service Promotion Office as a symbol of improving JR Shikoku service.At the beginning of the announcement, characters for 6 manned stations were created[99][100]After that, it has been introduced to unmanned stations.Each character name will be the station name with "chan" added (example: Matsuyama station is "Matsuyama Eki-chan").
In addition to being used for goods and advertising, the character was wrapped at Takamatsu Station in February 2014, and the appearance became the "Takamatsu Eki-chan" specification of SHIKOKU SMILE STATION.[101].
In May 2016, the image character "SHIKOKU SMILE STATION" will be the culmination of efforts toward the tourism campaign "Shikoku Destination Campaign" to be held from April to June 5.I'm sorry Eki-chan, Recha-kunWas born.The concept is a smiling fairy who magically turns stations and trains into smiles[102][103].
In December 2020, it was adopted as the second generation design of SHIKOKU ICOCA.
