Alstom shares it has several
solutions that already enhance
passenger hygiene, such as " hygienic grab poles painted with a
specific powder paint that prevents the proliferation of bacteria
and offers a permanent and efficient protection against contamination, " explains Heulitt.
Rethinking existing vehicle interiors is another way to
enhance safety. For instance,
Buncher says Siemens Mobility is
seeing a renewed interest in hard
seating since it is easier to clean
and disinfect. And Heulitt shares
Alstom expects to maintain passenger capacity with additional
standing areas where possible.
" Our current Citadis Spirit,
100-percent low-floor product
is a great example of how we can
keep this spacing for passenger
distribution rather than with a
partial low-floor solution where

space may be occupied by steps, "
Heulitt said.
Alstom is also exploring integrating more touchless technology into its products based on
customer requests.
BROOKVILLE shares it can
work with agencies to make provisions for amenities like personal
protective equipment dispensers
and add onboard contactless fare
collection to existing vehicle fleets.
BROOKVILLE also has existing
capabilities to provide agencies
with real-time information to help
with monitoring crowding levels.
" BROOKVILLE also offers
real-time data connectivity,
including GPS location, of its
streetcar fleet to transit agencies and operators, " Maher said.
" Pairing these data monitoring
features with the automatic passenger counting system installed
on the vehicles, an authority or

Brookville Equipment Corp.

agency would be able to provide
real-time occupancy data via a
web app for riders. This could
help passengers make educated
decisions on choosing to board
a crowded car or wait for a less
crowded car only minutes away. "
