New app tells you nearest subway exit to your destination


Tokyo Metro Co has begun testing a new application for smartphones which lets users know the nearest station exit to a destination they are heading to.


The new app uses radio-frequency transmission so that it can be used in locations such as subway stations that do not receive GPS.


Currently, test operations are being implemented only at Omotesando and Nihonbashi subway stations until mid-March next year.


Tokyo Metro will expand the app to include more stations when it officially launches the service.
