Supporting demonstration operation of demand transportation in Hiranai Town, Aomori Prefecture
~ Cooperating with the construction of new public transportation in areas with declining birthrates and aging populations ~
Dennou Kotsu Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Dennou Kotsu”) is supporting the demonstration operation of demand transportation (reservation-based shared taxi) that started on January 15, 2024 in Hiranai Town, Aomori Prefecture (hereinafter referred to as “Hiranai Town”). Hiranai Town has begun trial operation of demand
transportation with the aim of improving the convenience of
transportation for residents. Cyber ​​Traffic will support this new type of transportation from a system perspective and contribute to improving the convenience of transportation in the area.

Hiranai Town has supported the transportation of its residents by operating community buses and school buses depending on their purpose. However, it is difficult to precisely cover the entire town with buses alone, and people who use buses without driver’s licenses, such as children and the elderly, complain that there are no buses available at the time they want to use, and that there are no bus stops. Opinions such as “It’s far from the destination” were received. Under these circumstances, in order to make it possible to move around the town and further meet the transportation needs of users, the town, with the cooperation of local taxi operator Hokusei Kotsu Co., Ltd. We have embarked on the establishment of a new “Demand Transportation” system. Demand transportation is expected to improve the convenience of transportation, as it allows users to get on and off at the time and location they specify. For this demonstration operation of “Hiranai Town Demand Transportation,” Hokusei Kotsu will not only provide operating vehicles and drivers, but will also be in charge of accepting demand transportation reservation calls. Cyber ​​Traffic provides DS, a cloud-based taxi dispatch system that enables appropriate reservation management and route creation by inputting user information and destinations. This demonstration operation began on January 15, 2024, in an area that includes the entire Hiranai Town area, as well as the area in front of Asamushi Onsen Station and Noheji Hospital, which are popular areas.
