Abstract

Under current social distancing measures diesel trains cannot, generally, contain enough commuters to make themselves more environmentally favourable than small cars. Similar results are true for buses. The suggested preference order of mode of transportation should be: oStay at home; oWalk/ use a bike; oUse small electrical single person carriers (e.g. escooters, or electric bikes); oUse a small car; oUse public transport; oUse a large car (as a last resort). A team of Cardiff University doctoral students have created a user-friendly app to inform the public/government/environment agencies/public transport companies as to optimal passenger packing. oApp details: https://bit.ly/App-details oApp interface: https://bit.ly/App-interface
