sustainable transportation model.
(1) Town revitalization: Establishment of “Learning Baskets”, collaboration with local events, and implementation of activities to promote use. Building a model for creating a flow of people through the fusion of regions, education, tourism, and experiences. We will promote usage through learning (financial education/MM activities). (2) Town planning: Collaborate and collaborate with commercial facilities, financial institutions, sports facilities, schools, public transportation, and farmers to establish boarding and disembarkation points (ensure access) and coordinate with each facility and event.
