“SUBTouR Z,” a bus-location system application for smartphones

SubTour-Z is a real-time bus information-management application for smartphones that enhances the safety and security of bus users and the operating efficiency of bus operators.
Due to the increasing number of young people less interested in owning their cars and the declining birthrate and aging population, public transportation such as buses is becoming more important. While local governments and bus operators are doing their business in a difficult financial situation, there are an increasing number of cases in which they are working to reduce costs by reviewing operating routes etc., and to expand users’ opportunities for the services, as well as to improve their services form the view point of users.
SubTour-Z supports the optimization of bus businesses that support local economies and livelihoods by enhancing the convenience of both bus users and operators.

  • Bus users and their families obtain bus operation status and delay information via smartphones/ mobile phones
  • Inform bus route and current location
  • Inform things to see on the bus routes (for sightseeing bus users)
  • Inform time to destination and place to rest (for sightseeing bus users)
  • Support for reviewing schedule based on actual operation data (for bus operator)

We have introduced this system to bus operators and local governments, and examples of the system in Sakata City, Yamagata Prefecture have been introduced in newspapers and televisions.
