Yihan Li, Taipei; Willis Ke, DIGITIMES 0

Taiwan-based Jobus platform plans to venture its bus matching services to Southeast Asia before finally developing into an autonomous car ride-hailing platform, according to the firm's chief operation officer YD Chang.

Since its inception two years ago, Jobus has been expanding its user base through cooperating with 15 local passenger bus companies, Chang said, adding that his company hopes to integrate diverse routes and ticketing data and sell the bus companies' surplus tickets to international tourists through the platform.

Chang said that Jobus will also foray into Southeast Asia, seeking to provide more accurate matching services by harnessing passenger bus transportation capacities of different countries in the region and even developing car ride-hailing services there.

Chang revealed that Jobus is cooperating with Taiwan-based Turing Drive, a provider of autonomous shuttle solutions, to develop an app-based platform to connect passengers with operators of autonomous buses or cars as driverless vehicles will become a new transportation choice in future urban mobility.
