Abstract

In Japan, an aging society has come. Theinhabitants of middle mountainous ares use cars as the daily transportation mode. On the other hand, most elders who can not drive by themselves tend to depend on pick-up services by household members. However, the pick-up service constrains both driver's and passenger's activities. In addition, household members will face more frequent pick-up neds from elders in the future because some of pick-up service providers would be a consumer of pick-up service, due to their aging. In order to tackle this problem, this study simulates hybrid transportation service such as "pick-up for feeding to bus" which combines the pick-up for feeding by household members and drivers in other households, to the regular bus services. The purpose of this study is to evaluate according to the waiting time of pick-up and achievement rate of elder's activities.
