Signal Light / Capacity of Carriage

Signal Light
Signal Light



The Signal Light indicates the capacity level of a train’s coach. Passengers can follow the light and form a line in front of coaches where there is still room to accommodate more passengers.

A great idea showing how modern public transportation can be organized more intelligently and efficiently. The advantage, or rather the benefit, of the concept is that it is able to steer large crowds of people in train stations so that each individual can get oriented more quickly and use public transportation more efficiently.
