The Second demonstration experiment of on-demand public transportation service which ʺwill transport you directly to the place you want to go, when you want to goʺ, the Yokohama MaaS ʺAI BusTMʺ
started on the today on the 10th.
The ʺAI BusTM
ʺ is a service that lets users operate the dedicated mobile app on their smartphones and make a reservation.
The A.I. technology will send the bus with the best route and will let you board without being tied to a timetable and provide a smooth transportation to your destination!
Also, you can search for tourist facilities, gourmet spots, and information about events on the app, and enjoy a round-trip in the Minato Mirai 21 area, the Kannai district and the Yokohama Bay Area.
This new project envisions the service to be used as a future transportation method for not only tourists, but also MICE participants.
Why not try it out yourself when visiting PACIFICO Yokohama?
