We study the three-dimensional transport theory of massive spin-1/2 fermions resulting from the vorticity dependent quantum kinetic equation. This quantum kinetic equation has been introduced to take account of noninertial properties of rotating coordinate frames. We show that it is the appropriate relativistic kinetic equation which provides the vorticity dependent semiclassical transport equations of the three-dimensional Wigner function components. We establish the semiclassical kinetic equations of a linearly independent set of components. By means of them, kinetic equations of the chiral scalar distribution functions are derived. They furnish the 3D kinetic theory which permits us to study the vector and axial vector current densities by focusing on the mass corrections to the chiral vortical and separation effects.
