Contribution to the Local Community
Expansion of Times CAR for the Revitalization of Local Communities
Revitalization of Local Communities through Collaboration with Local Governments and Public Transportation Agencies
In collaboration with local governments, we are actively taking action to revitalize local communities by offering a service that benefits users in combination with the use of rail transport, car sharing services, and tourist attractions. We also offer car sharing services as transport infrastructure in sparsely populated areas where the population is decreasing due to outmigration, the aging population, and the decline in birth rate. In doing so, we are taking actions that help revitalize these areas by offering a means of transport and attracting tourists.
Major initiatives over the last three years
Holding judo classes for children
PARK24’s Judo Club holds free judo classes for elementary school children every week for the purpose of youth development and to broaden the base of those practicing judo. Classes were cancelled between 2020 and 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic but started back in April 2023. For more details, please see Information about the PARK24 Judo Club.
Support for Areas Affected by Natural Disasters
We called Times CLUB members for donations of Times POINTS to aid areas afflicted by natural and other disasters, and contributed collected funds to the Japanese Red Cross Society and other entities. The PARK24 GROUP also donated the same amount to these entities.
The Foundation for Orphans from Automobile Accidents (FOAA)
Each year since 2002, on August 9 (Parking Day), we make a donation to the FOAA to provide aid for traffic accident orphans. Times CLUB has introduced a system under which Times POINTS are exchanged with money to be donated to FOAA.
Donation to the National Land Afforestation Promotion Organization (Green Fund)
Times CLUB has introduced a system under which Times POINTS are exchanged with money to be donated to the Green Fund. This fund supports various greening projects including planting in the nearby environment, forest maintenance, spreading and raising awareness about green and forest environmental education.
