Toyota Motor Corporation, Nishitetsu, and JR Kyushu launched a new multi-modal mobility service for smartphones on November 28. The application, My Route, was developed by Toyota and Nishitetsu and was tested between November 2018 to March 2019 within Fukuoka City. Users can search for bus and train routes, check operational status, book a taxi, and find nearby tourist attractions. Online payments are also possible using the Toyota Wallet system. Toyota is planning to expand the service elsewhere following Fukuoka and Kitakyushu. Source: Nikkei Shimbun, 11/27/2019
