Three ways rail operators can support safe travel
By utilising technology to understand people flow in and around stations, operators can ensure distancing, prevent crowding, and plan for safer journeys.
Keeping trains running, while protecting the health of passengers and staff, will require sweeping adjustments by operators on the front line.
Ultimately, it will come down to the ability to keep a close eye on passenger flow and station capacity.
Machine learning technology and real-time monitoring may hold some of the answers. It’s only by considering the station as a whole and understanding how people move into, out of and between stations, average wait times, and even occupancy on trains, that operators can determine the most appropriate and sustainable way of protecting commuter safety and improving forward planning.
