To implement social distancing measures, the public transport sector needs to be transformed. If 1.5 meters distance is required between passengers, the number of passengers allowed on a bus/train/ferry/plane will be significantly reduced. What is an economically viable way to implement this? At the same time environmentally and socially sustainable?

See challenge questions below (Needs to be Addressed Section).

1. Challenge Questions:

  • Can you come up with an agent-based model or simulation that can demonstrate how to implement an economically viable and sustainable way to implement the new transportation measures? 
  • Any other ideas that are digital and sustainable in the long term that might help the transportation sector?

2. Data Needed:

Google mobility data https://www.google.com/covid19/mobility/

We are looking for coders, data scientists, domain experts, policy-makers interested in joining the hack to develop solutions and prototypes for the challenges posed above.
