Recently, there have been several issues with regional public transportation for Japan that are different from the issues encountered in major transportation systems. The use of information technology is expected to solve these issues. Human resources shortage is a severe problem that requires a solution at the earliest. In japan, regional public transportation systems fill the gaps in depopulated areas where the major transportation systems are unable to operate or have been withdrawn. Because most of the financial resources required for managing and operating these regional public transportation systems are provided by the respective local governments, the systems experience a chronic shortage of funds. Hence, regional public transportation systems apply only a limited number of personnel. There has been an increasing number of reported accidents caused by who become inattentive while driving because of health issues. The number of drivers in these regional transportation systems who suffer from health issues will increase with the aging of the workforce. We believe the regional public transportation systems operation must be managed by monitoring the health status of the drivers. Therefore, to digitize the operations management of the regional transportation systems and improve their work efficiency, we developed an application with two modules, namely, one for operation managers and the other one for call operators. The applications will support employee management in the systems and reduce the burden on the employees. One function of the application will be to link the health status of the employees with operations management using employee health information.
