On October 5th, trial service of Yokohama Maas “AI Bus” began, an on-demand shared public transportation service that provides “direct rides to your destination, whenever you want.”
As part of Yokohama Economic Affairs Bureau’s “I-TOP Yokohama” business project, the AI Bus operates in partnership with NTT Docomo, Inc. primarily in the Minato Mirai 21 area. Vehicles are allocated using a special app, and as vehicles take the optimum route, waiting times are short and a smooth journey to your destination is assured.
At PACIFICO Yokohama, we are actively cooperating with this project in the following ways: installing boarding/alighting points, setting up “street-corner terminals” to use for dispatching vehicles, and providing discount coupons for participants.
This innovative project is expected to provide a new means of transportation not only for tourists, but also for people attending conferences, exhibitions, and a range of events. How about trying out the “AI Bus” on your next visit to PACIFICO Yokohama?
