Social Distancing Made Simple

Users of the Stuttgart Transport Association’s (VVS) mobile app can share the availability of seating on trains and buses with other app users. Thanks to the MENTZ “full vehicle alert”, passengers can decide whether to switch means of transport or take a different route. This feature is part of the VVS’s community-based information system that lets “customers inform customers” in the Greater Stuttgart metropolitan area. It also helps riders ensure effective social distancing during the Covid 19 crisis.
