In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing has become a way of life in most of the U.S. However, for large segments of the urban population, social distancing can be complicated and difficult, particularly for those who rely on public transportation.
Mask mandates and requirements to remain six feet apart rely on human behavior and the honor system to work. In this informative webinar, sponsored by Conduent Transportation, attendees will learn how technology can be used to help enforce social distancing requirements and keep passengers safe while still getting them where they need to go.
Among the technology highlighted:
- Apps and tools that can provide riders detailed information about routes, arrival frequency, and availability of adequate seating.
- Detection gates that can count the number of passengers making sure that public stations and vehicles aren't overcrowded — helping to maintain optimal ridership safely.
This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to improve ridership by keeping your passengers safe.
