Good episode? Give it some love!
Passenger's Engineering Director Dave Hulbert and Engineering Lead Andy Leon join Matt and Tom to explain how they have been able to deliver accurate, robust and reliable updates to help essential travellers to plan their travel around social distancing recommendations. 

Bringing streams of crowdsourced information alongside automatic passenger counting from a number of different suppliers of hardware on the buses, creates a qualitative picture of the live occupancy of the vehicle. Whilst this is hugely important during the pandemic, Passenger believe the technology also has longer reaching benefits. Built at pace from their Enhanced Vehicle Information module, Passenger are rolling this out now to help inform users of the cleanliness of vehicles plus space and seating availability.
