CO-APS: fighting COVID-19 in public transport

CO-APS is a project funded by EIT Urban Mobility that aims to develop a mobile application that helps reduce the spread of COVID-19 by managing density in public transport and public spaces.

Even though scientific evidence so far seems to indicate that there have been very few contagions on public transport systems, it is important that our sector continues its efforts to provide the safest possible environment for travellers.

The CO-APS platform implements mobile technology to gather anonymous user data, open data from cities and data from third party services to provide relevant information about crowds and density to public transport operators and city authorities. This is done to inform and thus better protect citizens against the global pandemic by enabling them to avoiding crowds.

CO-APS will be tested across four cities in Europe: Barcelona, Karditsa, Sofia, and Istanbul.
