The 1st of January 1946 marks a significant step for transportation routes on the island of Shikoku in post war Japan. Supported by the United States of America; Japan has taken steps to reinstate local transportation links with the foundation of small regional public companies to propose and initiate operation of services.
 
Shikoku Transport Company, under supervision of the Ministry of Transport (Un'yu-shō) have commenced the operation of three regional bus services utilising imported Flxible Clipper type vehicles constructed in America during the mid-1930s, donated in bulk to the Japanese Ministry of Transport. These comfy 29 seater buses can reach a top speed of 103km/h and are easy to maintain, making it the perfect choice for our initial operation.

Shikoku Transport Company route map.
 
The initial routes connect the major towns of Takamatsu, Marugame, Kannonji and Kotoshira with villages dotted along coastal roads and run down winding mountain paths. These new routes will make it easier for people to travel into the towns for business or official reasons and possibly even leisure. The services are operated on a for profit basis; despite attempts for a subsidy from the struggling government for services it was made clear that should the service fail to deliver profit, there would be no option but to cease operation, leaving the people of Shikoku with limited travel options.

I'm quite interested to see how this goes. Downloading OTTD on a mac is a complete nightmare for me, so I can only use Simutrans. :P

Toyoshima Shigeki sat waiting at Kotohira bus station for the service to Kannonji and then onwards to Nio, around him several others were eagerly anticipating the first bus service since the end of the war, as the scheduled arrival time grew closer more and more people started to arrive ready to welcome Shikoku Unsōkaisha to their town, the clock kept ticking, one minute to go, thirty seconds, arrival time, but where was the bus? Minutes passed and the people grew glum as no sign of the bus was evident, Shigeki sighed the Americans had failed them again...

 

(there we go, I'm kicking off this RP properly! :P )

Four hours late, the bus arrived in the cold dark night.

 

The Americans had trouble getting the bus in place and up and running due to the horrible condition of the roads in Japan at the time. There was a lot of apologies and they gave the poor people who had been waiting out in the cold a free ticket each.

 

The word said was that all eight buses given to the island would be up and running in a matter of days. Would the Americans disappoint yet again? No-one knew...

Shigeki looked around, the bus had finally arrived five hours late which meant that his ride to Kannonji ended up being free but now, it was three in the morning on a cold Winter's night, Shigeki along with several others had camped out in the station's building unsure of when the next bus would come, he sighed, the party he was meant to go to would have finished by now he could only hope his friends would forgive him for missing it.
