Smart Shuttle

On September 28, NearMe and Jordan began offering a service linkage between Smart Shuttle, an AI-powered on-demand airport transport service app, and Japan Transit Planner, a route search app.

NearMe's Smart Shuttle is an on-demand shuttle service that matches and picks up passengers. The service uses proprietary AI to find the most efficient travel route for passenger's booked destinations and desired arrival times. Japan Transit Planner is Jorudan's principal service. Its popular smartphone app has over 30 million total downloads.

With this service linkage, those using Japan Transit Planner to search for routes within a flat-rate service area of Haneda, Narita, and Naha airports will be have a link to a Smart Shuttle reservation page displayed in their route search results. Users will be able to book a Smart Shuttle dispatch. (Confirmation provided within 24 hours. Reservations available until 3 p.m. on the day before the date of boarding.)

For Narita and Haneda airports, the target areas are 15 of Tokyo's wards (Chiyoda, Chuo, Minato, Shinjuku, Bunkyo, Taito, Sumida, Koto, Shinagawa, Meguro, Ota, Setagaya, Shibuya, Toshima, and Edogawa wards). For Naha Airport, access will be available to applicable areas in Naha City.
