We have already informed you that the signing ceremony for the Brunei Bus Digitization Project, of which Zenmov is the representative company, was held on December 3 in Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei. In this issue, we would like to share with you some of the media introduction in Brunei.
The launch of the public transportation project in Brunei was a milestone, and the signing ceremony was widely reported on TV and in newspapers.

The following week we published an article describing this project (https://borneobulletin.com.bn/a-smooth-ride/ dated December 8, 2022) (Figure 11)
In the commentary, Zenmov Tanaka says, “In order to promote the digitalization of buses in Bandar Seri Begawan, we have visited more than 800 bus stops to confirm their exact location, explained Zenmov’s traffic management system, SMOC, to be implemented at bus companies, and educated drivers. The project is progressing smoothly.
This pilot operation is the first phase of the project, and we will continue to build a one-of-a-kind bus operation system suitable for Brunei,” the report quoted Zenmov as saying.
The commentary article is succinctly titled “A smooth ride,” which is also the goal of Zenmov’s bus digitization project.
