Details of the Demonstration Experiment
- Starting in 2019, a Tsugaru Line temporary passenger train (between Kanita and Mimaya stations) will operate in conjunction with the Hayabusa No. 1 during the summer to provide convenient sightseeing on the Tsugaru Peninsula. This year, a shared cab will operate from Okutsugaru-Mamabetsu Station to Ryubisaki as alternative transportation on days when the temporary train cannot operate.
- Dennou Koutsu Co., Ltd. will optimize cab dispatch by utilizing data on Shinkansen reservations for the "Hayabusa No. 1" train that departs from Okutsugaru-Mamabetsu Station, and by forecasting the number of passengers who will use the cabs.
- This is the second experiment using data on Shinkansen reservations, etc., following the case of the Yamagata Shinkansen's Yonezawa Station in March 2021.
