Fighting the Corona Crisis

How the Public Transport Sector can React to COVID-19

In many countries, restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 crisis start to loosen up step by step. As shops re-open, under specific conditions of course, people start to become more mobile again. Many of them feel insecure and are not sure what rules they should follow when using public transportation. The mobility world must help to find effective solutions to restore passenger trust and to show reliability. The best way of doing so is by distributing information. We at Siemens Mobility, HaCon, Bytemark and eos.uptrade believe that detailed, precise and actual information is required to influence the passengers’ behavior and insure safety in these trying times.

In our action plan, we have put together three measures with one common goal: Help minimize the exposure of travelers by providing relevant and useful information. It contains the following options:

  • Updates / Tutorials
  • Adapted Routing
  • Occupancy Analytics

The transport industry is already doing a terrific job, offering mobility to the public in these difficult times. Let us work together to be prepared for actual and upcoming challenges. Stay safe, stay healthy!
