Kyushu Shinkansen Conducts Dynamic Pricing Trial Between Hakata and Kumamoto Stations

West Kyushu Shinkansen N700S

JR Kyushu will conduct a dynamic pricing trial for the Kyushu Shinkansen’s Hakata to Kumamoto station segment, applying a pricing system to their internet-only discount ticket ‘Kyushu Net Hayatoku 7’.

The dynamic prices will vary depending on the travel date, time of day, train services, and timing of reservations, with fares ranging from 3,400 yen to 4,200 yen for adults and from 1,700 yen to 2,100 yen for children. The current price is 3,800 yen for adults and 1,900 yen for children. Tickets will be on sale from February 1 to June 23, for use from March 1 to June 30.

JR Kyushu states that the reason for the trial is ‘to even out the number of passengers using this segment, which is the most heavily utilized within our network for both Shinkansen and conventional line express trains, and to provide a comfortable travel experience.’
