Provision of local bus services in Japan: focusing on the roles for local governments and nonprofit organisations

The aim of this paper is to analyse the roles for non profit organizations (NPOs) in the local bus market, in comparison with those for local government. First, we describe the Japanese local bus market before and after deregulation. Secondly, we consider the roles for local governments and NPOs in the local bus market. Next, we analyse some pioneering cases. In conclusion, we give the future prospects of local bus service provision in Japan, from the viewpoint of partnerships among local governments, private operators and NPOs.
