JR Hokkaido Bus operates routes connecting Hokkaido cities, as well as local city services in Sapporo.

Overview

Besides providing bus service inside the city of Sapporo, JR Hokkaido Bus also operates chartered buses. Its central business is transportation between the city center and residential areas, such as Teine and Atsubetsu; with some services starting from the bus terminals at subway stations.

The regional bus routes were originally established to complement the company's railway services, but were subsequently transferred to local carriers following a financial downturn in the company.[ citation needed ]
