    Health Improvement Project for Taxi Drivers
    Hyundai Motor is also attentive to social issues regarding taxis, which have become a critical means of transportation. Taxi drivers travel about 250km per day; however, due to lack of time and space for rest, drivers often suffer back and nervous system problems. In addition, the age of taxi drivers is increasing, where 20% of the entire taxi driver population is over 65 years old. Their health problems and aging issues lead to lower capabilities in terms of coping with a crisis while driving, which is a serious social issue that threatens public safety.

    The company’s ''Taxi Driver Health Improvement Project'' consists of a health improvement center, health improvement bus and a health inspection package. The project aims to provide the infrastructure and services that assist taxi drivers in managing their health by utilizing their niche hours.

    Firstly, the health improvement center collaborates with SK Gas to establish physical strength by improving space in containers at five LG Gas stations in metropolitan areas. The center offers various professional health measurement meters, including blood pressure, body component analysis measurements, as well as smart exercise programs. Health improvement buses are those with exercise programs approved by KSPO; they visit key resting areas of taxi drivers to give exercise tips customized for the individual driver. It is anticipated that the bus could be used by 20 people on a daily basis and 5,000 drivers on an annual basis. Lastly, the health inspection package is a program for drivers over the age of 65; it provides dual service of specialized health inspection for driver and car. The company is seeking innovative projects for the establishment of a safe traffic culture and public safety in general.
