Japan is getting pumped up for the 2016 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, and whenever there’s a huge event, you can bet that the entire country will come together to make it as special as possible. Even the railroad companies are playing their part in the celebration of the major sports event, and from August 1st to September 15th, Tokyo’s Yamanote Line will be partnering with 15 sponsors to run an 11-carriage train decked from floor to ceiling with Olympic features.

Officially named the Rio 2016 Olympic/Paralympic Gambare! Nippon! Car, the train will beckon passengers into a carriage with a running track stretched across the floor, and ads rooting on popular athletes from Team Japan.

The train will transform itself to sport a new look throughout the weeks of the Games, in Olympic style from August 1st to the 25th, and Paralympic style from August 26th to September 15th.

Even if you can’t be in Rio to watch the Olympic and Paralympic Games, you might still be able to get a little taste of it on your morning commute.
