Shift2Rail’s My-Trac collaborates with a new COVID-19 application

Building upon the research and innovation work performed in Shift2Rail and the My-Trac solutions resulting from the same project, Co-Aps, a new mobile application, will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by managing density in public transport and public spaces. Co-Aps is funded by EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), showing a successful institutional collaboration between Shift2Rail and EIT Urban Mobility.

If you often use public transport in Barcelona, Istanbul, Sofia, Athens and Karditsa, you have the unique opportunity to test the application and help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in public transport.

Through in-app challenges and games, you will be asked questions that will help creating a real-time picture of the situation. How busy is it in a specific station? What percentage of passengers is wearing masks? Each city has different challenges and different prizes.

By participating in the pilot, you can win transport tickets from the public transport operator in your area. Download the app and help us reduce the spread of COVID-19 in public transport. More information can be found on Co-Aps website.
