2 How to check the level of impact on your workplace and your business partners.

The publicly available “Map of Games’ Influence on Transport” shows the level of impact on roads, railroads and areas around venues during the Games if no action is taken for each day and time period.
We have also prepared a Travel Time and Route Search System during the Games (for project registrants only*), which allows you to search for anticipated travel times and routes by car or train during the Games by specifying the start and end points of your journey.
