Background for implementing initiatives to address the cab crew shortage
Now that the Corona disaster has subsided, the shortage of crew members is being discussed as an important issue in the cab industry, along with the topic of overtourism in Japan. Some people's preconceived notions and images of the industry are that working hours are long and that it is not flexible, but in fact there are many cab operators that offer flexible work arrangements. In addition, the shortage of taxi drivers is not a problem that occurs throughout the day, but can be greatly improved by responding to demand during certain times of the day, such as peak demand in the morning and evening commuting hours, late at night, and during weekend events.

Dennou Transportation's Regional Public Transportation and SDGs Initiatives
Since its establishment, Dennou Kotsu has developed and provided cab dispatch systems and outsourced dispatch services to cab operators to maintain and sustain regional public transportation. From 2019, Dennou Kotsu will conduct a number of MaaS and regional transportation demonstration experiments in cooperation with local governments, public organizations, and private companies nationwide, and in 2021, will commercialize its services as a regional transportation solution.
Due to the aging of the population and the concentration of population, approximately 80% of public transportation systems in rural areas are losing money, and the number of vulnerable people and transportation blank zones are increasing due to withdrawal or downsizing of operations. In light of these circumstances, we will continue to respect the spirit of our founding and the SDGs set forth by the United Nations, and strive to realize "a society in which all people can always have the mobility they need for their daily lives" and "a society in which transportation companies that support the mobility necessary for local communities can continue to operate indefinitely.https://cybertransporters.com/sdgs
