A few passengers board the monorail at Hamamatscho Station for Tokyo's Haneda airport on Sunday afternoon. The monorail is usually packed with travelers.

This monorail is never packed, it basically is only used for workers to get out to the factories or travelers.

I agree with gogogo, I've never not had a seat if I've wanted one when going to Haneda on the monorail. This is just Japan Today trying to whip up a bit more hysteria.

The beginning of the end of modern humans. Our overpopulation has doomed us. Viruses will keep coming.

@Reckless: humans are brilliant and can overcome anything.

I disagree with you both. Actually, I used this monorail to get to Kawasaki a lot. It is crowded during certain times of the day like any other train line.

I live on that line, I disagree, "packed" on this line is 2 maybe 3 people not sitting down.

The Spanish flu pandemic killed between 50 - 100 million people in 1918. Humans are still around. I bet you though Y2K was the end too.

There were definitely less people on the odakyu line last night.

The romance car only had about 5 people in the cabin.

I use it 3 times a week and sometimes on the weekend. I have had to wait in line at Hamamatsucho station for the next train because it was full.
