Toyota Motor PH Expands Availability Of On Demand Shuttle System


During the height of the community quarantine last year, Toyota Motor Philippines pilot-tested an on-demand shuttle service servicing the Philippine General Hospital.

Around a year later, in a bid to accelerate its shift from a traditional automaker to a mobility company, Toyota is expanding its On-Demand Shuttle (ODS) system to companies looking to provide safe, comfortable, and reliable shuttle service for company employees.

Working with SWAT Mobility, Toyota has come up with a mobile booking application called SWATBiz. The system automates route preparation and streamlines the employees’ seat booking process, eliminating manual arrangement of shuttle destination points. Moreover, the app helps operators monitor the shuttle vehicles through its real-time tracking system which optimizes asset management at the same time.

Toyota says the system can be tailor fit to the operations and specific needs of employees. For example, the ODS system features two routing types: dynamic and fixed. Dynamic routing applies more on arrangements where work schedule constantly changes, ridership count in the vehicles varies, and where close-to-door pick-up and drop-off points are preferred. Fixed routing, on the other hand, suits fixed work schedules, pre-defined routes, and shared drop-off points.

Companies can learn more about the On Demand Shuttle system by emailing OnDemand.Helpdesk [at] toyota.com.ph.
