March 9, 2015
Akita-shi, Akita Prefecture:
On March 9, it was found out that the shuttle bus that departed the JR Akita Station east entrance showed the wrong destination by mistake.
At least 4 passengers including two students of the Prefecture School for the Deaf were waiting for a bus at the east entrance stop, but failed to pick them up. The Akita-chuo Traffic Company moved around a substitution bus in 15 minutes late.
The company said that when a male driver input six digits of number and indicated the destination he made a mistake in the number.
