Dennou Kotsu launches an initiative to address the cab crew shortage! Demonstration Experiment Allows Taxi Crew Members to Work on the Side in Their Free Time

Dennou Kotsu will launch "Spodora," a demonstration program for holders of a type 2 driver's license to earn income as a cab driver on the side in their spare time!
The first target will be the Yokohama and Saitama areas, with the Sanwa Kotsu Group as the collaborating party. This demonstration experiment is scheduled to run from November 10, 2023 to January 9, 2024.

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.

Details of the "Spodola" sideline cab crew and the role of Dennou Transportation.

In this demonstration experiment, Dennou Kotsu will launch a specialized side job recruiting service, in which Dennou Kotsu will have a type 2 driver's license holder work only during specific hours of peak demand, and will play the role of matching cab operators who wish to accept side job personnel with job seekers, aiming to solve and ease the driver shortage, which is an important issue in the industry. The service is intended to alleviate and alleviate the shortage of drivers, an important issue in the industry.

Demonstration period: November 10, 2023 to January 9, 2024
Remuneration form: Hourly rate of 1,200-1,800 yen per hour (fixed rate with overtime and late-night premiums)
Hourly wage increases during late night and early morning hours when demand for cabs increases.
Working conditions: 1 or more days per week, 4 or more hours per day (shifts must be submitted by the previous day)
Other : Hourly wage is accrued from attending the training institute's driving school.

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
