Researchers Seeking Solution to Overcrowding at Train Stations

Jülich, 1 October 2018 – Congestion is becoming an issue at many train stations in Germany. Particularly during rush hour or after large public events, platforms frequently become overcrowded and are no longer able to cope with the influx of people due to steadily rising passenger numbers. As part of the CroMa project, scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich together with their partners are working to develop new concepts and measures that will alleviate the situation and further improve efficiency at train and underground stations. The project, which is being coordinated by the University of Wuppertal and involves other universities, transport operators, and event organizers, is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research with a total of € 2.1 million over a period of three years.
