Data science is not only helping the world solve the Coronavirus crisis, it’s also helping us to cope with its far-reaching impact. Whether it’s machine-learning techniques to generate new treatments for Covid-19 or tracking food supply chains to avoid shortages, data-driven insights have never been more valuable.
The transport sector is no different. The industry is faced with the unprecedented challenge of operating reduced services, that still meets the needs of the UK’s vital key workers, whilst also preparing for an uncertain future. New approaches are needed to ensure the sector stays resilient and that’s where big data comes in.
That’s why we are offering all train operating companies(TOCs) access to our free analytics dashboard, designed specifically to help the industry meet passenger demand during the Coronavirus crisis.
To help our clients meet the needs of their customers we have also introduced new functionality to our personalised messaging service that helps identify key workers and their reasons for travel. That way our clients know exactly what services to keep running.
We are committed to supporting our clients, and the wider industry, during this challenging time and commend those working tirelessly to keep our transport networks running.
