【Notice】Introducing some representative examples to contribute to local community.


Dear Customer,

Thank you for using SKY HOP BUS.

Here, we will introduce some representative examples to contribute to local community.

<Our mission>

Operating our business, we aim to further enhance the allure of local community, realizing an environmentally-friendly transportation system, which is meant to care about the upkeep of local community. We hope that our efforts will contribute to the development of urban tourism nationwide. Specifically, we are adding more weight to the approach toward solving social issues.

<Case1: Clearing and collecting trash>

You will find a trash box and cleaning tools in our all buses and some bus stop. Our staff members take care of collecting the trash from our passengers, calling their attention not to throw it away at any of the sightseeing spots. We commit to keeping local community clean, clearing trash found around the bus stops, among others.

<Case2: Calling travelers’ attention to responsible behaviors>

We call the attention of our passengers to the responsible behaviors at the sightseeing spots so that they can enjoy the trips to their heart’s content—we prime the guests from abroad with various pieces of advice and information on the aspects of Japanese culture and customs that are different from theirs. Inside the bus,  we announce the tips for responsible behaviors by audio- guidance linked with GPS. We also give advice to the our passengers tips for a responsible traveler using “AKIMAHEN” and “ENJOY RESPECT KYOTO,” created by Kyoto city tourism association.

<Case3: Introducing a new type of buses>

We have introduced a new type of buses, as part of our approach to fulfilling an environmentally-friendly transportation system. On the lower deck of a new bus, there is a slope to allow wheelchair users board in their wheelchairs. We promote access by everyone to the tourism of urban areas. As of the end of March 2020, we run two buses each in Tokyo and Kyoto. We are going to stay replacing from to the old to the new ones.

We look forward to using SKY HOP BUS.
