NIIGATA – Bus operator Niigata Kotsu said it resumed charging fares Wednesday for its Bus Rapid Transit service in central Niigata Prefecture after a free-travel hiatus lasting two days. Riders enjoyed some 3,500 free rides on 38 lines due to a system failure.
Niigata Kotsu said it found out about the BRT system failure Sunday for a service in which customers get a discount for bus transfers if they use IC cards.
