The topic
The UITP Academy is organising a series of webinars in the framework of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. They aim to assist public transport companies in tailoring their business continuity plans.

Across our sector, various organisations are exploring and implementing schemes to incentivise an adjustment in commuter behaviour with the hope of aiding improved services during the busiest times. Especially in the current context, it is important for our sector to be able to transport riders safely and reliably.

One manner of ensuring this is increasing usage during non-peak hours and thus distributing the rush hour crowds.

The webinar will be moderated by Indira Khara, Manager- Knowledge and Innovation, Secretary General’s Office, UITP.



In this webinar, we will examine the various measures taken to ease the passenger loads to distribute the peak travel periods. We will take a closer look at case studies from around the world to tackle the congestion on public transport lines.

The webinar will also:

  • Present a variety of approaches to flatten the peak travel period
  • Provide overview of the main challenges for each method and solutions considered
  • Review the outcomes of the implemented measure
  • Examine the multiple fringe points that influence reducing crowds
