Transport company De Lijn will release a rough version of its bucket gauge next week. Travelers will be able to see how busy he is on certain lines via the color code in the De Lijn app. This says a spokesman for Karen van der Seib.
Flemish Mobility Minister Lydia Peters (Open VLD) said Wednesday in the Flemish Parliament that the crowded scale will be introduced within two weeks. “We are really working hard on that,” Van der Seib says. “We’ll be launching the first version next week. It’ll simply appear in the De Lijn app, so travelers won’t have to download anything extra.”
Different bus and tram lines will be colored depending on how busy they are: green, yellow, orange or red. “In the enhanced version, which will follow soon after, travelers can also provide input themselves.
De Lin does not get the minister’s idea for inspectors to issue gas fines to those who do not wear mouth masks. “The vast majority of our passengers adhere to the duty to mask the mouth,” says Van der Seib. “But for those individuals who are learning hard, the enforcement powers of our inspectors, which now fall to the police alone, will be beneficial.”
