*Main sections refer to those sections that the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) has surveyed continuously in its congestion statistics.
**According to the source, the MLIT defines a 100 percent level as a situation where all the seats in the train are taken and the standing passengers can find a strap to hold on to, while 180 percent is a situation where a passenger can, with some difficulty, read a folded newspaper. The rate represents the average level of congestion amid the busiest hour.
