7. Cleaning and supply
Passenger trains on the main line run continuously, e.g. 18 hours a day. For six hours a day, there is basically no passenger or freight transport on Jo-Jo-han. During this time, shuttles can be cleaned properly and loaded with fresh water, toilet paper etc. But already during the 18 hours of continuous operation, there is of course a need for cleaning etc. In many workplaces, cleaning is carried out during normal working hours. The janitor works his way successively through the workplace, room by room. The employees take a short break from their work. Take a coffee. Making a call. Lifts to the feet. Discuss with a colleague, etc. It works. Of course, it can also work on our passenger shuttles.
Cleaning of toilets and corridors can take place at the same time as the train rushes forward. During the worst rush hour, it is of course inappropriate / difficult, but at low and medium traffic it should be possible. As for clean water and so-called black water (wastewater), this can be continuously pumped from and to the last shuttle via the fully automatic connections between the shuttles. It can thus arrange the transport between the Jo-Jo trains and stations.
With continuous supervision, the vehicle fleet is efficiently utilized and travelers always have a clean and functional environment. With some training, these janitors could also perform simpler service repairs. Toilets should always work and trash cans should not be overcrowded.
