JBL(Japan Bus Lines), a consortium of about 60 bus operators in Japan will launch a new bus pass for foreign visitors in September.

The pass named “JBL pass” will allow travelers to ride about 100 express routes in all parts of Japan. This will be a great deal for those who had been looking for a cheaper way than shinkansen to get around Japan.

The pass will be available on sale from this September on the Japan Bus Lines website.

At the same time, JBL has been working on pictograms and foreign language guidelines to be able to serve multinational customers.
