TFL to track underground passengers for overcrowding data

View original

Transport for London (TFL) has announced they will begin using passenger’s Wi-Fi usage, such as their movement, across London underground to monitor overcrowding and tube delays across the service. The scheme intends to use this data to better inform TFL staff and passengers about platform overcrowding. Following privacy concerns, TFL said all the data they collect will depersonalise the data and securely store it.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
