Tokyo Bus Crew Cleans Bus In Break Neck Speed
FaithTap Staff 6/11/2015
With a little teamwork and a whole lot of speed, this cleaning crew does what seems impossible. Every single day, 323 three trains leave the station for Tokyo. Meaning, these "bullet trains" seat approximately 400,000 people a day. To seat that many people, the Tessei cleaning crew understand that their work must be completed at a rapid pace.
The have only seven minutes to clean the entire bus before it departs. Within those seven minutes, each worker must personally clean 100 seats. Not only that, but 20 cars per shift, to make the numbers even more unreal. The method of their madness is down to a perfect science: each row takes 12 seconds. Beyond that, so much more is involved like wiping the trays down, sweeping, checking for luggage, fixing the shades, and more.
The cleaning standard is high, but their work ethic goes far above that. They all pride themselves in the work that they do, knowing that it does take diligence. Diligence is one of the most valued virtues where they live, and not only that, but a way of life. Through their diligence, the unfathomable 146,000,000 passengers a year are able to ride in a clean environment.
