Tokachi Bus passes now available on smartphones
Tokachi Bus launched a smartphone version of the “Obihiro 1day Ride Ticket” that gives users unlimited bus usage within Obihiro City for one day. It also started a smartphone version of the “Tokachi 2day Ride Ticket” that gives users unlimited bus access within the Tokachi region for two days. By providing an e-ticket option that users can purchase on their smartphones without needing to go to a tickets sales location, the hope is to increase bus usage mainly among local residents.
The e-tickets are available for purchase on the “Japan Transit Planner” app offered by software developer Jorudan (Tokyo). To purchase, users register on the app, select “Tickets” from the menu, and then purchase an e-ticket. When exiting the bus, users display their e-ticket on their smartphone screen and show it to the bus driver along with their boarding ticket. The service started on May 17.
E-tickets are convenient because users can purchase them anywhere and immediately board a bus at the closest bus stop. The “Obihiro 1day Ride Ticket” is 900 yen for junior high school age and up (including adults) and 450 yen for elementary school children. The “Tokachi 2day Ride Ticket” is 3,900 yen for junior high school age and up (including adults) and 1,950 yen for elementary school children.
